A Nice Dish
Author: Dino Hi


Old Filipino man, Uncle Benny, how about making a nice dish
OK den, me fix you up, make rice and pissh
Wow! This is so good, gobbling and scarfing the fried fish up
Hey! Where did you buy this fish Uncle? Lifting his cup
Watsa madda you, you go pisshing, da ada day
Ya! But we didn't catch anything, what you say?
Watsa madda you, you crazy, I get in da pridge
What? No way! I'll check the fridge
Watsa madda you, you put in package, I clean
Oh my God! That's last week's left over old bait, turning green

Not forgotten

Just wanted to dedicate this poem, to my good growing up friend Mike and his Uncle Benny. Both deceased in the 90's. An actual incident that happen in the early 70's. The family still talks and laughs about this today. We and the world will laugh along with the family. Can you hear them talking in heaven? "sssit! Watsa madda you, you crazy?"
Name:                                           Remember Me
