To see the land of Topsy-Turvy
I was very surprised
You will be in amazement
When you see it with your eyes,
The sun used to rise in west
Children used to go to school at night
During the day, people used to rest,
The moon had its own light!
The people used to walk on hands
and that too on walls,
Isn’t this a weird land
Where boys love to play with dolls!
Women used to wear bindi on chin
Lipstick was worn by boys!
The plants could grow without water
The cat was chased by the mouse
Blacksmith’s work was done by a potter
Instead of people, animals used to live in house!
Animals used to have humans as pet
And discount rates were high,
To eat pedigree humans used to get
Instead of eagle, ostrich would fly.
Roots prepared food instead of leaves,
The most free creatures were bees.
Ants were bigger than elephants
Beggars were plump and fat,
Adults used to cry like infants
And rich used to wear rags.
Gum was used to break things and
Seconds were larger than minutes,
So peculiar would this land be
And this land of our creations!!!
