All the town stood up in arms,
To quench the thirst of five alarms.
This blazing treat was given me,
Handed down, by legacy.

Louisianna, extra hot,
A cajun mixture, hits the spot.
I've never lost that recipe,
That blew-up daddy's factory.

Never stand behind the man,
Who holds pop's chili in his hand.
Not unless the wind is right,
Doing so may end your night.

Once I sat beneath a tree,
To eat a bowl of fantasy.
Spicy hot, this pepper sauce,
It shot right out my a**, of course.

Here's a secret you may know.
Eat lots of bread to quench the flow.
A trick to any flaming stew,
Is keep a definite end in view.

I had a good chuckle when I read this. :) I must say I respect your ability to rhyme so fluidly! I have always struggled with that aspect of poetry.

Paul, I hope you don't mind but I printed this out to give my sons. When they were young they used to have contests to see who could eat the "hottest" anything. this brought back some fond memories.

Paul, Most folks thinks that if chili and stew doesn't burn the hair off your tongue it isn't good,,looks to me like those next morning affects would detour their thinking but so far it never has! Great write Paul! Lisa
