Treasure Island

Monk E. Biz

(Timeless / Right Now, Right Here)

An English Course in India!

Try as I may
Try as I might
My language
is just NOT

Perhaps there is hope
In India for me
maybe in Varanasi?

I admit I'm bad, maybe

Kolkata, Mumbai, Bangalore?
All of their English I adore!

I'm in need of some re-educatin'
I'd go there just for vocab class takin'

'Hi, my name is Bob,
I hail from The Punjab'
My effulgent life of mirthfulness
leaves me with nothing less
than pure Yogic blissfulness'

'Profaned voracity, with churlish expression? '

When they write it leaves great impression!

I just use my small box of words
certainly to my own folly
perhaps they'd help me in

    You have Dr Suess locked in your basement penning rhymes for you now? All joking aside a funny thought, neat theme. (Report) Reply

    Great fun. I wouldn't mind being a teacher of English in an Indian summer course, except that it would probably be too hot for me. You don't seem to be in much need of such a course yourself.
    Best wishes,

Far south the lift,
