Let's play the copycat game
You nod
I nod
You wave
I wave
You shrug
I shrug
You blink
Blink
Eyebrows wiggle
Wiggle
One eyebrow arches
A condescending challenge
Paper is located
And pencils hover
Ready
You draw a line
I draw a line
Curve
Curve
Straight
Straight
Triangle
Triangle
Curve
Curve
Curve
Curve
CURVE
CURVE
Jagged line
Jagged line
Tow monsters are drawn
A scaly hand triumphantly bursts into the air
Its body follows
You shake hands with the rapscallion
Reptilian
Creation of yours
Who says his name is
Tyrone Alexander Rafial Copernicky Bruce
And says that Nova Scotia is nice this time of year
And would you like to go with him?
He leaves
You leave
I am left with my paper
It ripples
A feeble hand stretches
I grasp it ans pull my monster out
He drips of seaweed
And drools ink from his mouth
drip drip
What will he say?
Cambodia?
Patagonia?
He grunts
From what I can tell,
His name is
Harold Walter Bilge Sink
He asks me
If I would like to play
The copycat game
Drip
Drip
