I love you so, dear chimpanzees
I wish I lived as happily as thzees
High up on a lofty tree
Draped in leaves, lovely and free
In blissful ignorance of democrazies.

Lear Leer

There was a man who lived in a hospital in Coimbatore
He was at least hundred and ten and an improvisatore
And he recited mournful verses
For all his attending nurses
Till he drowned in her tears, each nurse there was, in Coimbatore.


Gator-Eater: A Limerick

Drawing by Argha Bagchi

It is best that you munch your gator
While atop a volcano’s crater
And if the gator tries to bite
Just let it slip without a fight
To be roasted and savoured later.
