Rob Schackne #702 - The Chili King

The Chili King

No man no cry 
fifty in one hour 
the Chili King of Hunan
everything hot as hell

Yellow Emperor 
Pepper X
home to vomit
home to shower
home to rest
the TV pounds at the door
he wishes he could
toss his spicy laurels
revisit the overworld
of winter wind and ice
eat something simple

a banana on toast
a bowl of spaghetti
mangoes over the sink
he's even heard of
an Australian meal
called wasted promise
that makes the locals fat
he just can't cook it himself
