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. © T. Wignesan – Paris, 2013

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.

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
