Tokens Of Love
What gift can I give her in token of my love?
It should be something most women think of!
Something like a book, a perfume, or a rose.
She can read the book wherever she goes.
When she reads the book, my love grows
My name shall be on every page she reads.
It's not the book; it's my love she heeds.
I know women like perfumes so much.
I think a small bottle will be a nice touch.
Every time she wears some, I'll be around.
The scent she smells will keep her bound.
I think a rose or two will be a great gift!
As women, we know, identify with it.
It could be...
I know someone who's absurd,
He seldom says one English word,
He always turns to Arabic,
He says he is Anglo-phobic,
He's got a name too big for him,
I know not why he lives a dream,
He comes to class to pass the time,
He takes no notes; he writes no rime,
