Being Not A honky Ponky

Humid and sultry
am unable to stand
in the kitchen.

The heat from the stove
drains the energy
I go on .

Perspire. Get drenched.
Stare at the flame.
My eyes burn.

I am in the middle.
Cannot stop at any cost.
Continue the toil.

Being not a honky
ponky character,
I work steadfast.

Like to outperform
in every task. I
aim at perfection.

That being the hassle
I manage to complete
the cooking in earnest.
