POEM: Kathmandu [PoMo Day 19 – Acrostic]

Keeper of arcane secrets
A land of great escapes
Temple-hopping hotspot
Hash-haggling hippie hive
Mystical mo-mo madness
Ancient trade bazar
Never knew Empire
Durbar Square 's the downtown
Underwater, back before its day

In Kathmandu, if you’re having tooth pain, you can nail a coin to the root knot of a special tree to request the analgesic intercession of the gods.

Elsewhere, I’d recommend a dentist.
