Here’s welcoming you to the beginning of the week and, of course, to the dVerse Poets Pub, which is now open! It’s Kim from writinginnorthnorfolk.com bringing you the Quadrille, when we take any meaning of one word and transform it into 44 poetic words.
Today, as this year is the 50th anniversary of the release of ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’ by The Beatles, I would like you to write a poem of exactly 44 words (not counting your title), including the word pepper.

Pepper can be a noun meaning the fruit of a climbing plant that yields pungent aromatic spice or various pungent vegetables, such as the capsicum. It can be a verb, meaning to season with pepper, to sprinkle or dot, or to pelt with missiles. You could write about something that’s peppery or pepper-and-salt, or you could write about peppercorns, pepper mills or peppermint. Does anyone remember the children’s books about Mrs Pepperpot? Or you could take inspiration from the Beatles’ album.
Join us in celebrating one of the best-loved Beatles’ albums! Just be sure your 44-word poem contains some form of the word pepper.
