A gift of skates is given. Rispetto for "Stretch Your Style" contest.

RISPETTO

Oh, thank you for the lovely gift,
you really shouldn't have done it.
You say I can be lithe and swift,
it's such a pity they won't fit.

You get another pair. No, two!
You want me to go skate with you?
A pair of clumsy cows we'll be,
with sore backsides and skinned up knees!
