In Jest

Land Of Mass

In the land of Mass, a time came to pass
When tigers were asked to eat grass.
Lions were asked not to roar
But sing like birds that soar.
Peacocks were told not to dance
But to sit in a meditative trance.
Monkeys were recruited and asked
To take on administrative tasks.
Humans were asked to bray
And to the Great Lord pray.

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.
