Thank-you cards

This one has almost the same rhythm as the following song: 5nizza – я не той. This is why listening to the song might enhance the reading experience.

 

When you want to make a card for

A friend you’re

Deeply grateful to,

Don’t crumple paper down on the floor,

There’s a simple thing

That you can do.

Just make a rhyme, and they will love it,

Just make a rhyme, even if it sucks,

Make any rhyme and they will love it,

About whatever, maybe even their ducks.

A Kalevala-rhyme is my favorite,

It’s quite neutral,

And sounds majestic,

I know everyone will savor it,

Alliteration

Sounds very domestic.

Traditional and they will love it,

Traditional, even if it sucks,

Make any rhyme and they will love it,

About old times, and old-timey ducks.

They always say it was well-thought-out, too

And it made them

Shed one lonely tear,

You’ll do this as well if you get a clue,

Thank yous

Are nothing I fear.

Make them cry and they will love it,

It makes them cry, even if it sucks,

Make any rhyme and they will love it,

About emotions, or sensitive ducks.
