A Pleasure Above Measure


Friend,
it is my pleasure to be your friend -
a pleasure above measure!

Look at my face,
surely you won't find grimace;

Consider ye my eye,
you won't find a proud 'I'

Measure ye my nose
that breathes like red rose;

Measure ye my mouth,
so fresher than breeze of south;

Count ye now my teeth -
a force to reckon with!

Friend,
to be your friend?
My pleasure,
a pleasure above measure!
