I mean it
I'm in it
I'm initiating intrusive
I'm bruising

You are
You mean
You are a dream
I mean it
I'm in it

A ****-****-pede rose from 'neath the sea
and sclobbered towards the beach
on seven and twenty tenticlaws
with a retching craw-craw screech

He flared his squinty nostrils
then snapped his clack-clack beak
his tenticlaws grabbed man and child
and he slapped his glob-glob cheeks

Soldiers came with their woof-woof guns
fired shots to schlump him dead
but they should have shot his flub-flub gut
not his hardy thick-***** head

Bescreeching craw-craw wallercries
The beast hauled himself onshore
Townchums flit-flit scurry-fleed
to evade his gaping maw

“I come in peace,” he scrotle-honked.
“Pray, let's have some fun.
I'd love a game of skittles, and a
custard cream-filled bun.”

Sitting on the perch the rooster boasted:
soon the king of swimmers I'll be
and laurel wreath I will get:
Cos the champion of champions I am in this respect!
The hens, excited, clucked in admiration,
small yellow chicks silently listened in awe,
oinking happily were the piglets,
and the ducks? Like crazy they laughed!

Friends, I am asking for your understanding, because all my translations must be proofread and corrected. Poems are hard to translate (even in free verse translations). The original is rhymed. Regards.

Wit when overreached
Is neither as endearing nor amusing
As the antics of a court jester;
But it is infinitely more foolish.

‘The greatest fools are ofttimes more clever than the men who laugh at them.’

What would I do without you.
You're always by my side.
Giving my life balance.
You open doors for me.
Point things out to me.
You're always right
