The Short Stocky Young Chinese Fellow - Poem by Raymond Farrell

The short stocky
Young Chinese fellow
Who lives next door
Is perpetually
Washing his car
Today, after a heavy rain
He was at it again
He has a wife
Slender and attractive
With long flowing black hair
And I am sure
If I were him
I would spend
A lot less time
Washing the car.
