Poetic Silliness

Ode to Morning Tea

O, delicious carrot
Thou art infinitely better than a Tim Tam
with thy beckoning orange countenance and
thy crunch most satisfying

Oh carrot, why do you wound me
with your tiny, masticated pieces
stuck behind my tonsil
I swallow and I swallow
but you are tenacious

O, celery
with your fibrous strings you try
to choke me
You will pay
You will go the way
of the carrot

Ode to the Dim Sim

Oh, Dim Sim
Discretely wrapped in
your delicate, pale skin
Steamed and saucy
Your questionable contents are
the butt of many a feline jest

Oh Dim Sim, how you deceive us
With your oriental ruse and
your faux Chinese name
Your spicy pork gizzards
and sinuous cabbage
are irresistible
