Musings of a wild kind – in rhyme! Here is the next edition of limerics by the self-proclaimed “Half-mad Know-mad”
Butterflies puddling at Sipna
Mud n salt, nothing beats the chakhna
The lizard Calotis
Not letting this amiss
Pounce, bounce – Oops! It broke its hip na!
The leopards of Bera
Only after sunset come out of their dera
In the pitch dark night
Fearing scorpion n snake bite
Guides often take along a Sapera
The Croc fell in love with the snouty
Slim n trim – Oh! What a beauty!
I know that she’s Gharial
Will ring up Just Dial
After changing my DNA, we’ll sip together green tea
The Pit Viper hissed to the Cobra
Why so fussy, you’re not in opera
Have you seen our muscles?
Bamboo’s, Hump-nosed’ or Russell’s
We’re fit n swift, accept defeat, chhokra.
The paddy is green, mellow light
The dash of red with dots of white
Shinny little birdie
Not only foolhardy
Red Munia, always, is worth a sight
