The tomyums have been hogging the light
Waiting for the musangs to join in the fight
And whack the puangmanees left and right
Leaving the chanees screaming thru the night

Tomyum version is not what a durian makes
A durian it is clearly NOT, for flavour sake
But if eaten in Thailand, some have fail not
Only the bitter taste, they might fall short

There are lessons that he clearly must learn
It's not just the profit that he needs to yearn
Especially when he is standing alone at the peak
All prying eyes can make him look so weak

Many can run a business well that needs not be said
But a dose of mistake could leave them for dead
How not to only succumb to the big dollar sign
It's really a matter of money over mind
