My Toy-Maz-HunKia speaks Japanese

Or perhaps it is Chinese

I find myself in a lingual quandary

 

A few of its demands I feel sure I have met

Food, drink, doctor’s visits, licenses

Shoes, socks, shelter, the basic needs of life

 

Yes, my Toy-Maz-HunKia speaks Japanese

Or perhaps it is speaking Chinese

Or perhaps that little known language called Carese

 

Only a few men and fewer women seem to be versant

But all the Toy-Maz-HunKias speak quite clearly to them

Oh to understand that little known language, Carese

 

Or would it be automobilese?

My friends from Japan tell me the two languages are completely different.I know the Japanenese write verticaly. Either way both cultures are wonderful.

GOD BLESS YOU
