Re: Dangerous Dan?
I had not read that poem so thank you DM but it did remind me of one of Jems posts from early scribbler days which made me grin at the time as my Father also told this one on the rare occasion he got squiffy. Mind you thanks to the drink, the poem usually had him flummoxed in the saying as much as it did for us listening
One fine 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,
One was blind and the other couldn't, see
So they chose a dummy for a referee.
A blind man went to see fair play,
A dumb man went to shout "hooray!"
A paralysed donkey passing by,
Kicked the blind man in the eye,
Knocked him through a nine inch wall,
Into a dry ditch and drowned them all,
A deaf policeman heard the noise,
And came to arrest the two dead boys,
If you don't believe this story’s true,
Ask the blind man he saw it too!
