A Poem

Filed under: Uncategorized — Kim @ 2:54 pm

Not many poems on the Chinese blogosphere so here’s an offering of doggerel inspired by having a Chinese wife and having the odd joke made about it.

My wife
She Chinese!
She cooky flied lice and…
Oh perleeeeze.
In fact we often speak in sentences like these:

(Me) “More Pizza darling?”
(Her) “Oh, yes please!
And let’s have one with some extra cheese.”

She’s even fond of the Japanese!

And yet she’s Chinese through and through
If that makes any sense to you.

Jolly silly, I know, but I got the first 4 lines in my head and had to finish it. I realise I didn’t have to share it, but there you go.

Anybody else out there got any odes to offer?

Don’t be shy…it would be hard to do worse than mine!


  1. There once was a product from China
    The package said “Nothing are Finah”
    I applied it to my head
    And now I’m dead
    So I can’t write this last line(ah)

  2. Congratulations! That is a truly terrible limerick!

    We should have a limerick competition on Lost Laowai to finish off this…

    There was young man/girl from Shanghai

    The winner gets a bottle of Baijiu.
    The runner up gets two bottles of Baijiu!
    Aha de ha.

  3. I’ve been pottering away on a few fairly rough ditties. The results may be seen here:

  4. The last 4 lines don’t rhyme

    Yours confused, Blah.

  5. There was a young girl from Shanghai,
    Who financially bled men dry.
    Said she: “I’m a teaser,
    What I want is a visa,
    For my parents, my cousins, and I”

  6. So, do I win the bottle of low-grade jetfuel, or not? Lah.
