The ABCD's Revenge

I just found this, I'd written it in 1995.

We've all heard at least a part of the full form of the somewhat derogatory term "ABCD" used by Indian immigrants to refer to the offspring of the previous generation of immigrants. I can recall only part of it ABCDEFGHIJ...

American Born Confused Desi
Emigrated From Gujarat
Hotel In Jersey …

In loving response to which, we have DCBA – Desi Confused By America. I've extended it to

The ABCD's revenge (To the tune of The Spam-Strangled Banner)

ZYX, WVUT, SRQP, ONML, KJIH, GFE, DCBA

Zindagi Yahan X-iled –
Without Voman Until Today,
Slyly Reading Quality Pondies
Of Naked Masturbating Ladies.
Knowing Just Indians Here,
Graduated From Engineering,
Desi Confused By America.
