Nonsense Verses

By Vatsala Radhakeesoon

Birthday Party


Daf the centaur
and his friend Wi-Wi the pink lizard
share the same birth-day
Each mid-October
they unwrap a newly-designed
scales-shaped sofa
bounce on it
drum their Pringles cans
then relax sipping
strong Cappuccino coffee
reading the Libra horoscope
through their bluish specs
on Witty Sapphire website.

My Friend from Wales


I have a friend
who lives in Wales
He often says
he has a boat-whale
I remind him
“but it’s only a whale”
He emphasizes
“Indeed it’s a boat
that can perfectly sail.”

The Lady from Hectic City

There was a lady
who left Hectic City
and went to live in Forest-Greeny
But when she felt nostalgic,
she called Grizzly, the energetic
They both tap-danced till midnight
and metamorphosed the crescent moon
into a starry kite
Thus she won over nostalgia,
This lady from Hectic City.
