She has so many penpals
But they're pretty much the same
Except for their hometowns
And all of their names.
She has one from Italy and Berlin
Also France and Japan.
But of course she can't forget
Mozambique and Ireland.
She wishes they could meet each other
She knows they would be friends
They could even find out
Their countries' different trends.
Even though they don't
Live in the same place
They do not care
About each other's race
It seems weird
How the adults in their countries fight
She wishes there could be peace
But the world will never be quite right.
