ode to 'ain

there is one man on this blue, fragile, planet earth we call home.
a man who has, on occasion, stood tall amongst mates.
there have been dark moments, though.
numerous and recent. disturbing, and worrying.
who would have thought at the dawn of the 21st century, mankind would pay witness to such horror.
i am talking about capsicum giganticus rosso.
a plea in the early hours of a cold, stark, dawn went unanswered,
giggles, silence. empty, vacuous promises, can bring so much inner pain,
but not quite like that of a red hot chili, in one's 'ain....
