Confucius wrote about Chi Wen Tzu, who always thought three times before taking action, where twice would have been sufficient. Roger McGough has constructed an hilarious diary, written in verse, for the unfortunate Chi who at the end of each poem is confronted with three courses of action. In the course of the diary, he discovers his wife's infidelity, he invents the haiku (and the willow-pattern plate) and does something unspeakable to his old friend Confucius...
