How did you get so long?
Were you washed with a special dergent?
Or given a pull and twist washing?
I have shrunken a bit.
Well, any way I am an old mattress,
While you are a fine carpet.
Tried so many times I have,
Yet I couldn’t grow an inch longer.
And yet you have grown nearly three inches long ,
And you are now more strong.
But my friend, dearest carpet,
Whether you grow long or short,
Whether you lose your fibres or not,
I shall remain your friend,
Always and forever,
And it’s my firm belief,
That you too shall remain my bestie,
Without any condition,
As best friends do,
So shall us.
