Wok the Dog (spoken word)


Do you eat dog,

Of course not!

What's this?

This is sashimi,

raw fish for my tummy,


I see you disagree of my Asian pedigree,

you find my fare,

quite contraire,

to your classic American hamburger,


Well here's what I find disgusting,

the cheese whiz you use,

the super-size you choose,

the extra sauce your lips ooze,

the salt, the sugar and what you call booze,

Pabst Blue Ribbon?


Call me ignorant,

but if Trix are for kids,

the food you eat as adults ain't much better,


so before you judge others,

watch your mouth,

not only what you say,

but what you put in it,

because it's far from ok.
