Alas! The modern world is such

that I don’t fit in very much.

Technology’s left me far behind;

I’m about to lose my mind!


French I speak,

Italian, too.

And the tongue they speak in Kathmandu.

(That’s Nepal, y’all. Nepalese, if you please).


I converse in fluent Dutch,

although I admit, not very much.

And I have a smart Pomeranian

that barks in perfect Romanian.


But there’s a tongue I just can’t learn;

it makes no sense to me, by durn.

I even speak obscure Balochi,

but I cannot understand Emoji.


Who thunk that up, anyway?
