A couple of posts I read today, reminded me of a ditty I was taught long ago – I shall type it out as I remember it and THEN go look it up and see if I can find it –
Simply because? I was taught various ditties over the ages, that were the ‘cleaned up for children/polite society’ only to learn later, upon trying to link, directly to it?
The whole thing was much darker and full of adult humor than even I, in my adulting years, and cursing ways, was okay with ‘reposting’ for consumption – LOL
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 policeman heard the noise, And came and killed the two dead boys. If you don't believe what I say is true. Ask the blind man, he saw it too.
Okay – I looked at a couple of sites – one that had a thread full of versions and one that tried to find the ‘origin’ of the poem/story –
I leave it to you, to do your own search and read which of the many sites refer to it, threads that discuss it.
It comes to mind often, when I see vastly conflicting news or views while ‘out and about reading in cyber land’ and neither sides’ version of events is really making total sense to me – – 😀
