Checking my Gmail this morning, the daughter of a high school friend and his wife sent me a message. “Hi! Stuck with Chinese homework. Have to write a poem.” I think she was using the chat feature as an excuse not do her homework. “No worries,” I replied. “I can help.”
After a few minutes of thinking, I responded with the following poem. It is Chinese. Kind of.
There once was a siu mai
All covered in sauce.
My brother didn’t want to eat it
So I said, “That’s your loss.”
Picked up by my chopsticks
and dunked in some soy,
The tasty steamed dumpling
brought my tummy lots of joy.
That’s all the creativity I can muster today. Have a good Friday.
haha good one.
hahahaha, no, it’s not Chinese 🙂
LOL – good laugh to start my day!
haha lovely. thanks. enjoy the rest of Friday and have a good weekend. Cheers,
hahaha hilarious! i suppose that sort of counts as a chinese poem…
More like a Chinese food porn poetry! Can you make me a similar one with chicken feet in it? *just kidding*
mmhmm it looks yummy!
I love this! What did your friend’s daughter think?
This made me grin like an idiot! You are a poet!! Yay! Of course it is easiest to write about that which you know… and you do know your food. btw I think I’ve gained weight just reading your posts. hehe!
That’s better than anything I would have done!
To experience the beauty and prestige of this replica Hermes without the interminable delay and the budget-busting price tag, why not consider a replica Hermes Kelly? One of the world’s most famous designer handbags, the Kelly has been featured in several high-profile movies and television shows.
Fantastic! And wonderful picture also!
Hah. Are all Chinese poems like this?
THAT is priceless Chris!!! You and Pat ( my hubby) share the same talent of dreaming up whimsical poetry at the drop of a hat!! I love it!!! hehehehehRuth Ann
@MichellelyNg – @everyday_yogi – @ungrandvoyage – @Roadlesstaken – Glad you all enjoyed it! Have a nice weekend. @Redlegsix – This was a rarity, I’m sure Pat is much better at it than I…@godisinthewind – Er, I hate to admit it but I borrowed the picture form Google images.@Dezinerdreams – No, most are better. =D@murisopsis – Cheap rhymes do not poetry make. That’s why I subscribe to you and Zakiah.@TheCheshireGrins – She replied, “HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA” but her mother later commented via Facebook that the assignment was a wee bit more complex.@CurryPuffy – I knocked a few ideas around but haven’t come up with anything yet. Can’t get “black bean sauce” to rhyme with “claws”.@kunhuo42 – In th emost roundabout of ways, perhaps.@YNOTswim – No? Shoot… =(@yang1815 – Glad you enjoyed.
Spoken like a true Sumurai.
LOL, nice one! =)
awesome! It flows.
@icepearlz – @Shades_of_Athena – @aPieceOfTheSky – @The_Eyes_Of_A_Painter – Glad you enjoyed my efforts, minimal though they were.
