A Love of Barmaids


How wonderful they are
Those sweet ladies behind the bar
Providers of that nectar
The sweet, sweet beer
They listen to the drunks
And put up with every quip
I actually admire them
For all the stick they take
Little paid and over worked
They deserve my praise
Although I never left a tip
Perhaps much to my shame
Or limited funds required
To get another drink
And remain entertained
By those lovely barmaids
The bring me beer
And listen to me talk
What more could I ask
A service I applaud
So I thank each one
As beautiful as they are
For serving and listening
To my incoherent ramblings
A love of barmaids
Is more than deserving
And her I am now
Thanking

Tonight at Fu-chou, this moon she watches
Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
