A brilliant idea. Poem by Konstantin Ananin


- You need some more stamps.
___________________________- Why?
I’ve already put on five.
- You see, your letter is too
Heavy. If you put on two
More…
________- It will be heavier.
But I can make it lighter.
I’ll put off all the stamps I put
On at home. I’m sure it’s good.
