Guernsey Literary Festival

Original by WANG JUNG

Since you, sir, went away,
My golden burner has had no incense,
For thinking of you I am like the bright candle,
At midnight vainly burning itself away.
MY VERSION

Since you, sir, went away
I've had a party everyday.
The cat is happy, the gerble too.
As for your 'photo, it's  in the loo.
