Best Poem of Howard Camner

One For The Queen Of Mah Jongg

She sits on her throne of mah jongg tiles
and passes judgment on you and me

She's got 13 orphans on a rack
and tortures them relentlessly

She tortures them relentlessly

She'll make you pass through nine gates
with prevailing winds and guardians
where you'll feel discarded

really discarded

where a dragon's concealed
and love
is hate

Read the full of One For The Queen Of Mah Jongg

The Mama Chung Massacre

Mama Chung wags her tongue
with strings strung when spring's sprung

That Mama Chung with hands wrung
schools the young past bells rung
and sad songs sung

Now Mama Chung her flings were flung
when swingers swung among the stung
