The Lizard and the Robin

The sun is glaring
with a few clouds
and a little breeze.
The lizard was pumping
as if it were doing sit-ups
trying to impress
a female lizard.
A robin appeared.
“Oh my lizard !
How masculine you look !
How strong you look
for being small!”
“Well thank-you, my friend!
I’m just trying to
impress my girl
but no such luck.” The lizard said.
The robin said, “Be yourself and
you’ll truly impress her.”
