Dances with Sushi…

If you ask what I like, I can tell you with ease
That my favorite food is of course Japanese
Sushi and tofu – agedashi – that’s right
These are the foods I could eat every night

And with this disclosure, you surely can guess
When it comes to my birthday, the food I request
Will always be seaweed with rice and wasabi
I admit to addiction – it’s not just a hobby

With blessed good fortune, twas some years ago
A dinner was had, and with it – a show
My dear friends and I – we sat and we stared
Admittedly feeling a little bit scared

The food in the bowl had started to wiggle
I looked at my friends and we started to giggle
For in all of my years I had not had the chance
To see agedashi tofu that danced

The performance continued for so very long
That the waiters wondered if something was wrong
For all we could do, my two friends and I
Was stare at that food with tears in our eyes

We laughed ourselves silly at what had transpired
Our laughter was totally tofu-inspired
It had nothing to do with us being cocky
Though maybe – just maybe – we’d had too much saké
