Jeff & Lisa’s Great Chili Cook Off Poem
At Jeff & Lisa’s Annual Chili Cook off of Scottsdale, Arizona
The whole city was gathered – friends like Aaron & Sara, Steffi, Cheryl, and Jonah
to see who would win the prize and be given a crown
of Chili Bean King or Queen of Scottsdale town
Now, Shari is stunning and full of grace
Will her chili qualify for first place?
She stood by her crock-pot with classy style
and told everyone trying it was worthwhile.
The others brought their chilis and expected the worst:
that Shari’s chili would will awarded as first
They all hoped for, to be the chili preferred
instead of coming in second or even third.
A wonderful aroma filled the house
and anxious they all were, even the supporting spouse
Walked in a lady, very new to the town
Eyes blue as the sky and hair of rich brown
She carried a crockpot that gurgled and bubbled
and gave us all a glance, looking shy and troubled
Her coat was unraveled, fuzzy and shaggy
Her apron was stained and her pants were baggy.
She put down her crock-pot on Jeff & Lisa’s table
and quickly wrote her chili name on the label
She smoothed out her hair and realized it was already 2
and pulled out a spoon she kept in her shoe
The people were all there and gave each chili a try
The first was so spicy, it made some people cry
They sniffled and moved on to the next chili stew
Excited to see what was in pot number two
Pots three, four and five were each greeted the same
The people hurried on just as quick as they came.
But onto pot six and it looked quite nutritious
And to their surprise it was quite delicious
Lisa gathered up all the votes
Jeff counted them, then cleared his throat
He made the announcement for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners
And, in the end everyone was glad their tummies were full from a spectacular chili dinner!!
Now… that you have read some of our fine poetry skills, I wanted to ask….
