Red Beans and Rice by Debbie Lacy

Man, I’d love some red beans and rice

I’ll put them in a pot to boil with chili power and some season-all spice,


And I’ll add some onion, green peppers and some garlic too

To give them flavor through and through,


I’ll let them slow cook in my big crock pot

With an occasional stir so they won’t stick, oh no they cannot!


You can smell the aroma as they start to get tender

I had to sample a taste while they continue to simmer,


Then I’ll low the temperature of my electrical device

And started to put on my pot of rice,


Then I thought, I have to do one more quick fix

So I reached on the shelf to get the cornbread mix,


Now that I have everything ready and to satisfy my appetite

I got my cornbread and my Red Beans and Rice.
