National Poetry Month: The “LL” Challenge: Allspice


Today’s word: ALLSPICE

Definition: it is the dried fruit of the Pimenta dioica,a tree native to the Greater Antilles. It’s thought to taste like a combination of cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves.

And today the clerihew form as past of Michelle’s DMC using the word zest from the
po-emotion of the day at MaryLee’s A Year of Reading. Thanks for the inspiration.

My husband Chuck, is cooking’s best
he creates pizza with lots of zest.

And when he creates his spaghetti
he throws in allspice like confetti.

    Jone, I wonder what that allspice laced spaghetti tastes like. Fragrant and full of zest, no doubt!

    Nice clerihew! Allspice on pizza? Won’t the little balls roll off?

  5. Love your clerihew, Jone, especially the wild abandon of that spaghetti/confetti couplet! Makes me hungry to read it. 🙂
