Limerick R9 / Stop Writing Limericks/ Hindi - Poem by Rajnish Manga

Limerick R9 / stop writing limericks/ Hindi

A limerick can be rather funny
when the syllables are on the money.

But when none of it fits
it can give you the shits

Would you stop writing limericks, sonny?


Original Writer: Herbert Nehrlich

हिंदी अनुवाद: रजनीश मंगा


लिमरिक भी हो सकता है इतना हास्य प्रधान,
चुनिन्दा शब्दों का मेल बना देता है इसे महान,

यदि शब्दों के युग्म मिलें न,
पाठक गण के ह्रदय खिले न,

लिमरिक लिखने से बेहतर है सोना लम्बी तान.
