Caferati at the Kala Ghoda Arts Festival - 1

Caferati swept the top three prizes at the Orange-Crossword SMS Poetry Competition we linked to here. Perhaps, as Manisha says, it's because we had prior experience? :) Anyway, here are the winning entries:

Seeing how much Peter uses his mobile, I can understand his cellphone being part of his DNA.

Great work Caferati! Enjoyed the poetry in g-strings!
