Never Put Yourself In A Wax



Forget about disagreement,
Never mind resentment,
Let's put on our performing customs,
and illustrate our talent in cosmos:
If I disguise myself as a tiger,
Would you match me as a lion?
If I turn myself into a rabbit,
Would you make yourself into a porcupine?
If I were to walk on tightrope,
Would you mind swinging on trapeze?
If I were morning,
Would you love to be evening?
...
Peace is opposite of wars,
Entertainment is the avenue to happiness of yours!
Join me for the fun and relax,
Never put yourself in a wax.

If you were morning
I would be coffee
If you were Rabbit
I would be carrot
