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.
