a Foreign Tease

"ít is fijn om ietsjes gek te zijn "

how many minutes would you stare
before you give up in despair
deciphering that line up there
and ask for a translation?           

or would you get the dictionairí
and thumb through it with acted air
of knowing what I thought Iíd share
to cause some aggravation

now should I end your suffering
perhaps you like the dangling
I know Iím quite annoying
but boy I love this game

now do I hear some muttering
some mumbling or complaining?
you know itís quite satisfying
to be a tad insaneÖ
