reichsdeutsch
hank

at a 40th party in london for a german
 1
i ask are you married
 2
he turns the question back toward me
 3
i say no, i've too many shortcomings
 4
he says what?
 5
somebody short is coming to my party?
 6
what short people are coming here!?!#%%$

this poem is in no way meant to be derogatory.
the main character of the poem was an absolutely lovely individual, although he'd a limited grasp of english.
but his english was better than my german.
and to my mind that elevated him above me.
