Tuesdays at Cheongster Cafe: Queue Sera Sera

ALL her life she knew

Anything brand new

Was all but her cue

One of the first few

 

Five-day sale was due

Took time off in lieu

Packed bag and pork stew

Book by Lee Kuan Yew

 

Three days in the hew

No bath, sleep or chew

Smelled like last week’s brew

Face became grey hue

 

One day before phew

Line abruptly skewed

Tempers flared and grew

Fists and chairs just flew

 

Down came men in blue

Hard on whistles blew

Fighters stopped in queue

Found a girl was slewed

 

Out of mouth she spewed

Blood and some char siew

Dead as slaughtered ewe

Cold as morning dew

 

Up there, on schedule

Heaven in neat pews

Queued up like her due

One of the first few
