The Dubey brothers

The Dubey triplets

Who typeset in Sanskrit
For a two-hundred year old company
That published subsidised copies of the Bhagwad Gita
(Sold for 50 paise only)
Passed away
One day after they were given their resignation letters

Three shorts by the sea

Mr Barrister
Your late father was a gentleman

He would have been reading
The small print
Of the petition on your table
Instead of staring at my beautiful lips

My darling is home again
My pretty one is here

Asked where she had been
The darling brushed her hair
And replied
To London to drink whiskey with the queen

Man is a disease
For which a woman offers many home-made remedies
When the disease is incurable, and all remedies fail
The woman marries
