Guess what I'm eating now...


Eight little dumplings
sitting in a row
I will take my time
and eat them slow

Seven little duplings
are all that's here
Oops there're only six
thanks to the chopstick spear

Six little dumplings
what a tasty bunch
This has got to be
the world's greatest lunch

Five little dumplings
Nearly half way there
Don't even ask
'cause I won't share

Four little dumplings
spicy and hot
Just as fresh
as they were in the pot

Three little dumplings
growing cold
Must eat them fast
or they'll get old

Two little dumplings
the best for last
Eat them now
'cause they'll go fast

One little dumpling
all alone
The last one left
all on its own

No little dumplings
the end of that
Now that they're gone
I feel so fat

Oh man, I love dumplings. I've had them at like, every place in town. Very good stuff.
By the way, your poetry doesn't suck, far from it. You're a master at incorporating your own feeling of satire into your poems. That gives them an extra flair that is lacking in most poems.
Just a thought...
