For a new Tanka

Written by: S.Jagathsimhan Nair

For a new Tanka
Thought of dinka and funka
Even Treblinka
Ere I could plump for my own
Punka,  ended the Tanka.

Dinka: A member of the pastoral people from the Nile valley
Funka: An east Asian herb
Treblanka: A Nazi concentration camp in Poland
Punka: The Indian name for a kind of  fan used in the past.
