DVD Lady

The DVD lady came over today
And she was Chinese
She knocked at my door
And as soon as I opened,
“You wanting teefeetee pleeease?”

“I haw new mowie and ca’toon
                     Awl ve’y gooo’
I giw yooou gooo’ price, I p’omise  yooou
You wanting Robin Hooo’?” 

“I am free tonight,” I thought to myself,
“and a movie would be great.”

I thought I’d buy one, but she sure didn’t
So I ended up buying eight

“Sank yooou my f ‘ iend, I cum back agaiiin”
She packed her CD’s and left
I played the disks, they sure were jammed
… now that’s black market theft!

For Deborah Guzzi's "Dialects Make the World Go Round!" contest

    They tempt you huh, they always did for me, bribing me, buy 5 get 2 for free. Eventually, it's either dubbed incorrectly or it doesn't work at all. Hehe, glorious poem for an outstanding lady like yourself. Love, Sami.

    I'm betting she gave you a 20% markup from the price you'd get at Best Buy. "gooo' price" I'm sure. Now tell me you have kids to feed. Tug at my heartstrings, make it look less obvious all you want is my money. ugh, this is upsetting me. I was just in Cancun where evreryone behaves this way. A whole city of con artists.

    This is interesting and funny. Loved it. Do you realize that fiend means unfriend?? But a pretty accent isn't bad at all. Few articulation lesson could be rewarding. Your poem is poised very well. All the best.
