THE MESSAGE~~UNDER THE MAT
Your incoming signals tell me a truth,
My outgoing signals agree and respond.
How do we let each other know
Without including the outside world?
I have something sensitive to tell you
That is very private, just for you.
Your parents would never approve,
I come from a different world,
When we meet tomorrow, on our way,
They would certainly hear if I spoke.
My sister who is your very good friend
Will tell you to look under the mat.
This secret message will seal our fate,
We will leave together, elope
Make a new life somewhere far away
Our love will never fade.
Our non-verbal courtship signals
Will ensure our secret is safe.
