(Love) Triangle In The Jungle

Tarzan was perched on top of his favourite tree, resting his weary feet

When he saw a lovely sight that made his heart skip a beat

It was as if a vision from heaven had descended upon his jungle

My God, she was the epitome of perfection, from every possible angle


Tarzan was no English Gentleman who would woo slowly while biding his time

For him, to let such a woman go would be the equivalent of a deadly crime

He had fallen in love before, but they were all riff-raff, he now realized

That he had even given those girls a second glance left him surprised


For a man of action like him, deciding was doing

He would propose to her right now, and to hell with the wooing

So he jumped down from the tree, to the adjacent tree’s branch

He knew he was in love, so not for a second did he blanch


The girl belonged to a UN Mission, come to Africa to help the natives

There were reports of a mass outbreak of constipation, so they’d got truckloads of laxatives

Turning suddenly upon hearing a sound, she got a pleasant scare

For there stood a handsome hunk, with chiselled features, rippling muscles, and wearing only an underwear


The man introduced himself while she feasted her eyes on him

My name is Tarzan ma’am, and in your deep blue eyes, I wish to swim

Don’t you worry, not all those who live in the jungle are savages

I, for example, am white, cultured, and know 32 different languages


But living alone in this forest is not good for a man’s morale

So it would be my honour if you would make this jungle your sasuraal

Tarzan continued on a bended knee, in a tone almost sappy

Ma’am I would like to marry you and make you extremely happy


The girl blushed so hard that her cheeks went crimson

To Tarzan, this made her look even prettier, especially in the backdrop of the setting sun

And then, the girl said- I would love to accept your (extremely) tempting offer

But I am afraid Sir, I’ll have to say no, for I am betrothed to another


Tarzan was not one to give up lightly, and so he said

I’m way hotter, so you can agree to my proposal, and say no to him instead

On hearing this, Diana laughed loudly and said, – You may be more tantalizing than the biggest of jocks

But NO ONE SAYS NO to the Ghost Who Walks!

    Since most of my now ‘regular’ readers were not even aware of my existence till recently, just thought I’ll start sharing my favorite stories from when I had just started this ‘story-a-day’ project on my blog. I start with a tale of Tarzan, the king of the jungle, and his first love! Enjoy!
