Peter Piper

So many times

this nursery rhyme spoken

a tongue twister

with its own history

Pierre Poivre

missionary from France

with an eye on peppers

places to plant and grow

and a recipe for pickling

no refrigeration

so Peter Piper picked

and pickled

__________________

dVerse prompt on stream of consciousness following my first experiment with pickling peppers. This rhyme was a childhood favorite.
