If you like to eat cold meat and consider that a treat,
Have you ever thought of adding chilli sauce?
Use a little, not a lot, since this sauce is rather hot
And you wouldn’t want to singe your tongue, of course.
Don’t be led astray by greed and take more than you will need.
If you do, I can assure you, you’ll regret it.
Though your tongue may twist and turn, your whole mouth will seem to burn
And I doubt you’ll soon be able to forget it!

Monty says: The pickle prompt got me thinking about other sauces and relishes which adults enjoy, but children’s palates may not be prepared for.
