CULTURE SCHOCK

Surprise! There's a new love interest!
She stole my heart but there's some Angina.
Like many things found here in the states
My special lady was also made in China.

In learning about each other there's
The “getting to know you” game.
And, it is quite apparent that
Our backgrounds are not the same.

I don't know much about Zen or Tao
So, we're doing the best we can.
Sure, I know some of Chairman Mao
But, more of Charlie or Jackie Chan

As it is quite obvious that
She didn't come from Duluth.
She is incredibly curious about,
What influenced my youth.

A favorite show of my younger years,
Brought forth a flood of TV memories.
But, I could tell she was disappointed that
'Hau-dee Dao-ti' was not Chinese.

Sharing our popular culture is
Part of a caring loving plan
As I broke the news that Pinky Lee
Was not from Japan.

Sky King was not a flying emperor.
I explained this to my honey.
And, the famed Lone Ranger was not
A show about loaning money.

Buster, Chaplin, Laurel and Hardy
Such legends define what huge is.
And the legacy of laughter left
By the great Three Stooges.

But, when it came to Abbott and Costello
A true classic comedy reference
I never thought that to her ears,
'Hu's on first! ' makes perfect sense
