Poem In Your Pocket (Hawaii Edition)


by Steven A. Yagyagan

Dere once wuz one boy from Wai'lua,
He wanted fo' eat kalua,
He smoke' da pork butt,
But den his pet mutt,
Ate all da kalua fo' shuwah

There once were a lot of plantations,
Big Five, through cheap immigration,
When unions grew strong,
They fled with a throng,
To survive in third world nations
