FENG THE CHEF REALIZES CHINA’S NOT BUYING SALMON FROM NORWAY


by Roberto C. Garcia


Now I understand it!

Read the newspapers lately?

An empty pan with olive oil

& fresh cut garlic is sizzling

in my Beijing restaurant. 

There's no salmon,

the patrons are hungry

for spicy salmon steak.

 

Norway would love to sell salmon

to us in China,

Norwegian fish farmers

are jumping up & down.

China refuses them politely,

politely in that Communist way

of saying without saying.

While my profits decline,

the salmon rots at customs.

 

I blame Liu Xiaobo,

he sits in Jinzhou Prison

making controversy,

his Nobel prize a monster

under the bed,

keeping China from sleep.

 

Yes, I blame Liu Xiaobo,

sitting in Jinzhou Prison,

writing poems on toilet paper

with some charcoal he's procured.

He writes, “I Have No Enemies”,

but clearly he doesn't like salmon.

If he did he'd return the Nobel Peace prize,

& let us get back to our cooking & selling.
