Making Friends, A Poem By Ahmad Ali Karim

A little red bird
Sitting on a bench,
Comes a big fox,
Speaking fluent French.

The bird doesn’t understand,
For it only speaks German,
It said, “Ich verstehe nicht,”
“Ich heiße Martin Hermann.”

The poor French fox sigh,
‘Cos it can’t understand,
Then they both smile,
And they shake hands.
