Sweet & Sour Poetry

Parlez-Vous Forklift?

Richie has a major crush on Sylvia
An exchange student from France
He’s been taking French lessons
So he could ask her to the dance

Sylvia is a beautiful, outgoing  girl
Richie really wants to impress her
He greets her with, “Bonjour, mademoiselle.”
She smile and says, “Bonjour, monsieur.”

Not waiting another second
Richie stutters everything in French
Sylvia gives him a funny look
His hands feel slightly drench

Very sweetly, she responds, “Get better.”
Pats his shoulder and walks away
Disappointed, Richie confronts his French teacher
“What the heck did I say?”

The teacher listens to his lines
To understand why Richie is so miffed
She explains to him what he actually said
‘He tried to hit me with a forklift.’

  1. Ha! Poor man. Now Sylvia will remember him as “the guy who was about to be hit by some crazy dude driving a forklift”. Well, now that I think about it, it would be much easier to remember him simply as “Richie”…
