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.

Yeah im getting older. I dont know who wrote this but i remember it from my junior year english teacher. She used it to help make learning about poetry more fun. Now that was back in 1980 and i know the poem is older then that.

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.
