Thanksgiving Plus One

By 豆腐, DÒU FU

Thanksgiving plus one
The turkey is done
Black Friday, broke Saturday
Thank goodness I’m done
To the near ones and dear ones
Be safe and be healthy

Dòu Fu, 豆腐, means tofu, a play on words for the famous Chinese poet Du Fu, 杜甫 (712–770). Almost fifteen hundred of his poems have survived the ages. Stopping by Su Duan’s in the Rain is one example that is suitable for Thanksgiving.
