Das Leuchtmittel 1 (English translation)

German

Das Leuchtmittel 1

Ein Leuchtmittel, nur außen kalt,
ist irgendwann mal durchgeknallt.
Zur Therapie ging's kurz darauf,
zu seiner Freud ein Licht ging auf,
doch hat es halt recht viel bezahlt.

The lamp 1

Once a peaceful quiet lamp
Lost its bearings, turned a vamp.
We had to call on Doctor Freud,
But there's a big bill - can't avoid.
So for the lamp this year - no summer camp
 
Thanks!

What a reading pleasure: "vamp" ... "camp", haha, if we would analyze it, what would we find ... 😄

We'd have to call on Freud's spirit to find out... ;-)
Thanks!
