Today's selection from the Emory Lee papers comes from the journal Echoes from Gold Mountain, produced 1978-mid-1980s at Cal State-Long Beach. It's from the poem "Pachinko Wizard" by J.K. Yamamoto. Sing along, everybody:

Ever since I was a shoonen
I played the silver booru
From Kyoto down to Nara
I must’ve played maiyoru
Each time I hit that lever
I make sambyaku doru
That tsunbo, oshi, mekura kid
Sure plays pachinko joozu
