Peppercorn High

My stomach is full
but I’m wide awake
why is that you ask
sharp to the tongue
and bitter to taste
why is that you ask
I expressed my love
to a peppercorn
one day
and to my surprise
he had nothing to say
I buttered him up
I shaved him down
because he was giving me
the go-around
round me to the black
round me to the white
round me to the food
that I spiced last night
round me to the jungle
round me to the store
peppercorn, peppercorn
I don’t want you no more
