The muse goes to Chef Chu's

Regulars at Chef Chu’s know all about the wall – photos of VIP diners over the years, posing for posterity. Challenged recently by young Larry Chu to wax poetic over the wall, I grabbed my Muse.

The Great Wall

Where the mighty and famous and feared come to dine

And to savor great Chinese cuisine

There stands a vast photo wall, one of a kind

Where movers and shakers are seen

In a moment both knowing and


With an eye to the future of fame

An offer was made to a resident poet:

“Rhyme the wall and we’ll honor your name!”

The result was a verse that captured it all

The renowned there enshrined and their glee

And put history’s stamp on a New Age Big Three

Gorbachev, Thatcher – and Me!
