Treasure Island

Mr. Nobody

(Timeless / Right Now, Right Here)

An English Course in India!


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

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

I admit I'm bad, maybe
Ahmedabad?

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
Tiruchirappalli?

    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,

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
