Demon Seed  (Quatern)

Black pepper always makes me sneeze.
It makes me cough and makes me wheeze.
Although it is a tasty spice
~ Ground pepper is not very nice!

I salt my food with total ease.
~ Black pepper always makes me sneeze.
If I inhale it up my nose,
please spray me down with water hose!

My eyes will water ~ then turn red.
I’ll head for safety of my bed.
Black pepper always makes me sneeze
~ Sets throat on fire like stings from bees!

A peppercorn’s a demon seed.
It burns my nose and makes it bleed.
~ So do not pass the shaker, please!
Black pepper always makes me sneeze!

LLD

         Tarzans' Blues

Ungawa, pasi, nip adoo
me Tarzan, I'm the king, that's who!
I swing it any way I please
and hang out with the chimpanzees!

Then Jane come here from overseas,
ungawa, pasi, nip adoo
she great big pain in BVDs
she make me do what she want to!

I was the master of all beasts,
the tribal chieftans threw me feasts
ungawa, pasi, nip adoo
now I get squat since she got through!

Beware of Jane! No good for you!
she take your pesas and igmoo
and give you the Swahili blues
ungawa, pasi, nip adoo!

Ah, Dutchie, no man alive would refuse a dance with you! Very good effort, my knuffelmeister.

There is one part, however...

I'll treat you after, on some Brie,

Unless we are going to be lying on a piece of cheese while you treat me, that line doesn't work....although it DOES present a nice mental image!

Angel, I just KNEW when I gave this lesson someone would write about black pepper.....not! Your imagination is a wonderful place.

The only thing I would be snitty about is the double use of hose in one sentence but, since women often speak about "a pair of hose", I guess it's fine

Very fine work, m'lady

Moose, "ungawa, pasi, nip adoo" is really an overused phrase in the world of poetry....NOT! Lemmee guess.....moose lingo, right?

There are a couple of errors. First, you are missing a syllable in the second to last sentence which throws the meter off and, second, any follower of the king of the jungle knows that Tarzan does NOT wear BVD's!!!

Aside from that, you thrill us with the same runaway imagination that provokes belly laughs the same way you always do..you never disappoint.

Balladeer,
Laughed my head off @ your reply, corrected the typos, but nope, not "Moose lingo". As far as I could gather from research, all words in question are either Swahili or early Portugese which became incorporated into the Swahili language with the exception of "ungawa" and "Nip adoo" which were made up for the movies.
Doc

EA,
Lol, but I'd be careful, we don't use that kind of language around my igmoo!

Ha ha, image is clear. Oh well Deer, you know me, always struggling with the English grammar, never know for sure when to use 'on' or when to use 'at' or when not to use them at all. LOL can't get the image you pictured from my mind. I'll be even laughing in my sleep I guess. But still I don't know how to say it differently.

Should it have been - I'll treat you after, to some brie - ? Oh that doesn't sound good either, that sounds like an exact translation from the Dutch.
Have to think about this. Thanks for pointing it out to me.

Rachael, try tapping your feet when reading your poem out loud, it's always helping me to get the rhythm right.

When darkness filled my window pane
And shadows flickered through my brain
The memories returned to tease
They mocked me that I could not please

I did not know you were not sane
When darkness filled my window pane
You lurked and cowered in the night
You stole far more than was your right

I waited when the lights went out
Your whisper shot out like a shout
When darkness filled my window pane
So quietly you’d call my name

I hated you when all would sleep
The secrets I was taught to keep
Thoughts of you are all that remained
When darkness filled my window pane

You know, I thought that was squirrley.
