One bright day,in the middle of the night. Two dead boys got up to fight.
Back to back they faced each other. Drew their swords and shot each other.
The deaf policemen heard the noise and came to shoot the two dead boys.
If you do not believe this story is true. Ask the blind man he saw it too.
Sort of sounds like our government.

There is some teachers that make learning fun, and you tend to remember certain things. I'm just wondering if others heard of other Poems along these lines. I'm not talking the Dirty poems, but the ones that are whimsical, and or make you stop and think.
