REALLY AWFUL INTERNAL COMBUSTION INJUN


Reverend Fordyce,
In year eighteen eighty
Thought it would be nice
And quite up-to-datey,
To India to bring
Lots and lots of rickshaws;
So he did this thing,
And they came in in scores.

Rickshaw Kolkata (Calcutta)  -  WIki

Rickshaw Kolkata (Calcutta) – WIki

‘Pullers need fuelling;
Now that is a worry,
For task so gruelling …

 

Dopiaza

Ah! Lots of hot curry!’ 

So came the thrust-y on
(Though not his intention)
Internal combustion
Injun invention!

    Why not give the customers a curry and then their own combustion will take them… 😉
