The Cleverness of Me

My sister and I went in together for a wedding shower gift. It was sort of a stay-at-home-date-night kit, including all the fixings for a delicious Italian dinner, a game, and a movie. My job was to write the card. This is what I came up with (remember, I have background in both poetry and Italian):

We are glad that you've found the fella
Who thinks that you are molto bella.
For those nights you haven't plans,
Use this kit to please your man.
When all is done, lean in a say,
"This is what they call amore."

Not too shabby, if I say so myself. Maybe one day I'll get paid to be clever...

Very clever. If you are still in the job market, look for something along the lines of writing. Don't miss out on your calling in life!

I liked it. I'm surprised you didn't put a line in there about "washing the pans" (cause that rhymes really good with plans)
