Limerick: Once the Yogi of Himalaya or the Laughing Gas Yogi

Limerick: Once the Yogi of Himalaya
                      or the laughing gas Yogi

		I

Once the Yogi of Himalaya
Preached laughing loud with Prânâyâma*
They thought him immortal
Put him on pedestal
Now he’s the toast of lost Gondwana.

		II

Once the same Yogi Himalaya
Taught laughing during Prânâyâma*
Lungs stuck to diaphragm
Voice: phonocardiogram
Now he’s part of iced Fujiyama.

•	Sanskrit for the art of breathing in yogic practices:
•	prânâ = (cosmic) energy; âyâma = vitality.
