Incompatible -- Reesom Haile, translated by Charles Cantalupo
A cat sings to a mouse,
And it sings back the same,
Which a dog barks to the cat,
Who doesn't change its tune.

Fire and straw join in.
Neither changes a note.
Now let the eyes and mote
Complete the refrain.

"My one and only,
Marry me.
I'm strong
Can't we just get along?"

They're playing our song.
