The Doppleganger

Charlene Delfin 1990 (Mandaluyong City)



Dear Doppleganger,



Oh, you look so much like him!

Except that you are yellow.

Does being someone you seem

Make you just as wild, mellow,

And super smart to the brim?

Tell secrets with your tone low.



Always curious,

Charlene



Dear Charlene,



I will tell on you quickly!

No, I’m just kidding. Relax

But still, you should just study.

Work as quickly as a fox.

Your mind is dwelling on things

That will not help you to last.



Always listening,

Doppleganger
