A Limerick A Day



The Dalai Lama and Lady Gaga

We simple folk must be impressed
When a sage from the east meets the west
To discuss the world’s soul
But it is, on the whole,
Something Beijing finds hard to digest.

    I thought Lady Gaga was a joke when I first heard her sing. I still think there’s some execs in an office somewhere still enjoying a good giggle. Can anyone just roll up and hang out with the Dalai Lama these days? What’s his fee?

      I am not much of a Lady Gaga fan and say what you like, but she is a fine singer.

      Oddball though she may be, that Oscar Sound of Music performance a couple of years ago proved she’s one hell of a singer.

      Swimming against the gay wave but Gaga is a complete waste of space. A music industry puppet. Dreadful poo.

        Odd that an industry puppet would poo poo the entire Chinese touring market by doing this with the Dalai Lama.

    Just back from Tibet. Probably the most devout population I’ve ever encountered.
    They long for their Dalai Lama to return and they all think he will. I would be surprised myself.
    He’ll be controlled by the Chinese if he does return, but they won’t imprison him in case they cause an uprising.
    A very oppressed population, which the Chinese try to distract or appease with lots of new roads, fancy public squares, money, money, money. Police on every 2nd corner. Cameras on every corner. 5 cameras on each tourist minibus. The guides reckon there are microphones too.

    A scary place to have an opinion.
    People disappear.
