On Being Shunned at the Chinese Buffet Triolet

“do not even eat with such a person.” – 1 Cor5:11

It’s all tough love and heat at the Chinese buffet
of sweet sour shunning, Kung Pao and fried rice.
Sunday’s stiff wooden rulers no longer hold sway,
so there’s tough love and heat at the Chinese buffet.

My old brothers and sisters hold hands as they pray,
Thank You, Lord, for The Truth, Dim Sum, and The Light,
It’s all tough love and heat at the Chinese buffet
of sweet sour shunning, Kung Pao and fried rice.
