What a peculiar creation,
Adding colour to the food of a nation
In tasting, they do not withhold,
Adding flavour in taste, being bold
Yet, they cause tears to flow;
They sting the eyes but we do not flee,
It seems we’ve found the key:
We recognize the beauty in the pain
We know the suffering is not in vain
After all, we know it’s for a good cause;
For to enjoy the taste, there are no laws
And so we press on through the sting,
Looking on to the joy the taste would bring
Did you see spot a good news in this?
It would be a sad thing to miss!
