CRAWLING ALL OVER TO LOOK FOR THEIR TEETH – 小虾 Xiao Xia

Xiao Xia
CRAWLING ALL OVER TO LOOK FOR THEIR TEETH

Fireworks for the ancestors
at Tomb-Sweeping Day were too loud,
Elder Brother Shu’s 6000-Yuan false teeth
got shattered and knocked out of his mouth.
Eldest Brother saw what happened
and helped in the search.
Brother Shu whispered to his older brother,
smaller movements, please!
Don’t let the young ones know two local cadres
are crawling all over looking for teeth.
