On vacation in Taiwan with a scraping cough,
Deprived the quiet comfort of a cigarette,
I endured the indignities of the deaf, the dumb,
And got what pleasure I could from a bottle of weak Taiwan Beer.
You there, with the bag of groceries!
You don't know that while you were in the store,
The finest-looking pregnant stray cat was showing an interest in your scooter,
Sniffing and licking the mudflap.
