A POLITICALLY INCORRECT MAH JONGG POEM

Johni Levene, the wonderful Mah Jongg teacher and player in Los Angeles, found this poem written by Edgar Albert Guest. It’s politically incorrect but oh-so-funny and I must admit my love for anyone who once wrote for my hometown newspaper, the Detroit Free Press. Eddie Guest, as he was also known, was born in England, moved to Detroit, and eventually became a U.S. citizen. He was very popular in the first half of the 20th century and was known as the People’s Poet.
