Limerick: Once a measly Miser in Mumbai

Limerick: Once a measly Miser in Mumbai

Once a measly Miser in Mumbai
Liked watching dancing girls on the sly
He went to Bolly-Wood
Though he felt jolly good
His loot sucked by Bombay Ducks well nigh.

    So are you, if you don't mind my saying so, Donna, but you're quite right about getting your tongue twisted. It was meant to... Kidding aside, thanks a lot for visiting. As I must say to all well-wishers: Too much to do at my age. EXIT Door in sight! Already got a toe in the door! So, sorry if I can't return the compliment by turning your pages. Every good wish.

    I don't know of bombay ducks, but this seemed pretty witty!!!

    Hi Andrea ! Glad you sensed the witticism, but you may only do this to its fullest extent if you knew what Bombay Ducks mean. They are "lizard-like fish", common enough in the Arabian Sea, but banned from the Euro-Union on account of poor packaging. Hey, I clicked on your pic and saw some good pieces by you: limericks (one excellent) and "rondeau" (?) You mean: rondelet? Don't have much time to visit like you guys. Guzzi is pretty fluent also. Maybe I will when able. I don't however much like the "musical chairs" comments though. EGW -thanks. Wignesan
