Spices That Talk - A Funny Poem

I went into my kitchen looking to see

Who was making all the noise

Who could it be


Then I saw Basil and Sage looking at me

Laughing and giggling pointing at Bay Leaf


Nutmeg and Cinnamon were there too

Rolling around clinking as jars do


Rosemary was the first to speak

We want to run through Lemongrass

We think it would be sweet in this heat


Chives have offered to take us on a long drive

To get out and see the countryside


We could stop at the groves

Pipes up Garlicand Cloves


Excuse me but I have a small request says, Fennel,

I would like to stop and see puppies at the Kennel


Clearing her throat and whispering sparsely

The fresh air would be good for me, said Parsley


Can I bring all my seeds with me asks Cardamom

If I leave them behind I will not be a good Mom


What shall I wear says Dill

Would something green make me look like a pill


What are you afraid of answers Cumin

You silly spice it’s not like you’re human


Don’t you pick on him says celery seed

Be nice, be polite, we all have needs


That’s right, we all should treat each other with respect

Spoke up Lemon Pepper, or you will get decked


The mustard seed started heating up

Let’s go now before I erupt


Ginger started to roll to the door

Come on gang, we may see the shore


Right behind you said Alum

It has been years since I have swum


So into the car, the spices did pile

Off for a ride, they were all smiles


Cayenne Pepper was lagging behind

Run said Curry we are all in a hurry


As the car drove off down the road

I was scratching my head, it was about to explode
