    People Who Like Pepper

    There are people who like pepper
    and put pepper on their meals,
    people who think it's better
    to eat something they can feel
    that tingles and that spikes up
    on the tongue
    and tonsils too
    that sends a spicy shudder
    as one masticates the food.
    That clears the throat
    and pricks the brow
    with perspiration
    'til somehow
    one's eyes enlarge
    and throat must screech
    for any liquid
    that's in reach!
    Makes one say 'Dear!',
    or 'Gosh!'
    or 'Flip!'
    when forkfuls pass
    between their
    lips
    and put one hand up
    to their chest
    to steady themselves
    for the rest.
    People who like their pepper,
    like the drama -
    LOVE the rush
    and when it's sprinkled over
    say 'Don't stop, that's not enough!'
    They grin with a
    sadistic glee
    to know that they'll
    eat heartily,
    a meal that burns
    and makes them growl,
    lean back in their chairs
    with a scowl -
    one eye half closed
    and lips in pout
    or gasp 'That's hot!'
    for those in doubt...
    but know this
    peppered, spicy pain
    is pleasure,
    for them,
    all the same
    that sparks and explodes
    their insides
    and has them clear
    their plate with pride!
    That makes one fan
    their flushed,
    hot cheeks
    and chuckle
    slightly
    like a freak
    delirious
    and wondering when
    they'll have a peppered meal again.
