Paradoxical Poetry

One bright day
In the middle of the night
Two dead men
Stood up to fight

Three blind men to see fair play
Forty mutes to yell, "Hooray!"
Back to back they faced each other
Drew their swords and shot each other

As a barefoot boy with shoes on
stood sitting in the grass.

"I see", said the blind man
as he picked up his hammer and saw.

Re: Paradoxical Poetry

I remember my dad telling me a variation of that poem. I think it was
one of his favourites.

Re: Paradoxical Poetry

There once was a lady named Bright
Who traveled at the speed of light,
She left one day, in a relative way,
and returned on the previous night!

Re: Paradoxical Poetry

Goldie,

there was a young lady from Ryde
who ate some bad apples and died
inside the lamented
the apples fermented
and made cider inside her inside

How's a duck alike?
It has two feet both the same.

Shaun,

I'd respond, but the only limericks I know would be quickly deleted by
Susan.

Re: Paradoxical Poetry

There one was a canner quite canny
Who one day remarked to his Granny,
"A canner can can anything that he can,
but a canner can't can a can, can he?"

Re: Paradoxical Poetry

Susan,

there was a young man from Japan
who wrote rhymes that no-one could scan
when asked why t'was so
he said "I don't know
but I think it always looks much prettier if I fit in as many words as
I can"
