Pepper-Pot by Donna J. Sanders

Legend speaks

of a pepper-pot

winning the war


saving starving soldiers

too weak to fight


a cuisine

borrowed from

the Caribbean isles


a dish of a spicy delight


some use tripe

and calves feet


from Trinidad

a blend of greens

with a sweet crab meat


they call it callaloo


a bowl of street food

looking like a soup

or thickened stew
