English-Vinglish...!
by Padmaja Iyengar - Paddy
Bookmark and Share
  Even when he spoke gibberish,
He thought he spoke good English.
This often had people in splits
And sometimes in laughter fits,
As he spoke only as per his wish.
 
Always caring for his family,
He told his friend seriously,
“I’ll marry my sister first,
And it’ll be my turn next
When my mother will marry me.”

Comment Hilarious is the way you interpreted the word, marry, although another meaning as per the dictionary conveys a right import. Kudos. Reason some say they married so and so off in our sensitive land.
