Jalapeño Peppers
© By Grady L. Duncan

If you’re lucky and live in the south,
chances are you know just what I mean,
when I tell for a fact, without exaggeration,
Jalapeños are the best peppers I’ve ever seen.


Take advice from someone who knows,
they’re pretty hot when the enter your mouth,
but time will tell; you will learn the truth;
they seem to get hotter as they move south.


  I hope you will listen to what I have said,
I’m giving you a warning as friend to friend.
By the next day you’ll know this is true;
they come out just as hot as when they went in.
