The Suitable Groom

In Posta, I heard it being said
That you are getting your daughter wed
That Gangaram is the groom to be-
Want to know his pedigree?
After all, he aint a bad man
Though his color is highly tan.

The shape of his face is right
Like the owl that comes at night.
In studies, I would like to state
Its hard to find someone so great-
Nineteen times he tried to pass
The matric when he stopped at last.

Asset wise they are also fine
Being slightly over the poverty line.
His brothers are not at all bad
One's headstrong, the other's mad,
The third son was brought up well-
He forged banknotes and went to jail.
Playing tabla is what the youngest knows-
He earns five bucks from standup shows.

Gangaram is often down in bed
With ailments of the spleen and head
But his lineage is a royal one-
His forefather being King Kansh's son
And Shyam Lahiri of Bonogram
Is somehow related to Gangaram.

Now, of course, I feel, without a doubt
That a groom like him would make you very proud.
