Limerick: Once A President Of Bolivia


Once a President of Bolivia
Frothed oblanceolate green saliva
Must dream was Ashoka*
On Andes throne Inca
That’s how COCA-cola drug India.

*ASHOKA (273-232 BCE) : King of Magadha,
was the first great commoner Buddhist Emperor
of India which, then, extended from Afghanistan
to Bengal, and from Nepal to Southern Deccan.
Among his recorded edicts: concern for the peoples’
welfare; medical attention for the needy; arboured
thoroughfares; nomination of officers to oversee
morality and magistrates; forbade the slaughter of
animals for food or for religious purposes; required
the reconciliation of all religious tendencies; wanted
everyone to practice compassion and charity towards
one another and to follow the laws of the Dharma or
Righteousness; and drew attention to the vanity of
glory and emphasised the supreme aim of Life itself.
