A Funny Poem

こんにちは、ネイトです。最近突然子供の頃覚えた詞を思い出しました。なかなかナンセンスで面白いです。それぞれの文がわざと矛盾しているのが面白い所です。色々なバージョンがあって誰が作ったのかはあまり知られていません。

Ladies and gentleman skinny and stout
I’ll tell you a tale I know nothing about
The admission is free so pay at the door
Now pull up a chair and sit on the floor

On 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 one another

The blind man came to see fair play
The mute man came to shout ‘hooray’
The deaf policeman heard the noise
He came and shot the two dead boys

He lived on the corner in the middle of the block
In a two story house on a vacant lot
A man with no legs came walking by
And kicked the lawman in his thigh

He crashed through a wall without making a sound
Into a dry creek bed and suddenly drowned
A long black hearse came to cart him away
But he ran for his life and is still gone today

I watched from the corner of a round table
The only eyewitness to the facts of my fable
If you doubt my lies are true
Just ask the blind man, he saw it too
