Joss Stone is making an impression on Hong Kong. We asked readers to submit a rhyme or limerick about why they love the teenage girl who signs with as much soul as Aretha Franklin. and Mavis Staples combined.


Winners get a free Joss Stone The Soul Sessions CD. There are still a few left on offer, so send your rhymes to cityseen@scmp.com


Finally! A girl who can sing-


More than just Ring-a-ding-ding,


And doesn't need to flash her bling bling


To prove she really has zing!

Quite simple t'is 'Mavis Staples-


Aretha', quoth lord of the riddles


I swore, Janis Joplin


But what awful spellin'!


Joss Stone's the name on the labels.

And a limerick...


There once was young girl called Joss,


Her voice, well my friends, it's the boss,


She sings so damn well -


A melodious swell.


Her CD, to my life, would add gloss
