DEAR AUNTY,

There’s this really sad sailor from Goa, who was washed ashore and has lost his memory. He’s so full of woe… What shall we name him?

Ritem.

original goan haiku #30

DEAR AUNTY,

It seems the ditty “My Darling Clementine” was written to show the perils of mining, and the chorus quoted the mine-owners of Goa fleecing us of our heritage – which line exactly?

Perpet.
…………..

Dear Perpet:

“you are lost an’ goan forever…” !!
