by Jack Prelutsky

When Tillie ate the chili,
She erupted from her seat,
She gulped a quart of water,
And fled screaming down the street,
She coughed, she wheezed, she sputtered,
She ran totally amok,
She set a new world record
As she raced around the block.
Tillie's mouth was full of fire,
Tillie's eyes were red with tears,
She was smoking from her nostrils,
She was steaming from her ears,
She cooled off an hour later,
Showing perfect self-control
As she said, "What tasty chili,
I should like another bowl."

      I absolutely love a good bowl of chili. I make mine with spaghetti, ground beef, onions, tomato juice, and chili powder. Homemade chili is something that is hard to beat. Just top it with cheese or sour cream and you have a great meal.
