A Burlesque

PhD thesis

( Inspired by the igNoble awards)

The elephant with it’s pink nose,
Flung up his trunk and with outstretched toes,
Danced a little stuttu
In a a violet-pink tutu.
The tiger stood on it’s tail
And did a jig on the rail.
The giraffe twirled it’s forked tongue
And sang a song with a guitar strummed
By an orangutan in purple pyjamas
With a gold tooth from Bahamas.
The music pranced.
The animals danced.
The future PhD stood entranced
And did a thesis on the hippo’s glance.
The lissome ‘potamus batted it’s lid
And solved problems by Euclid.
The future PhD stood entranced
And did a thesis on the hippo’s glance.
