Poem Commentary

This is a British folklore poem. Quite enjoyable if you ask me..

"One fine day in the middle of the night"

"One fine day in the middle of the night"


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!

An amazing spin on a rhyme I have heard everywhere since the first time i heard it. Well done.

Beautifully twisted and unique humor with a powerful downbeat.

I really enjoyed reading this poem. Your rhythmic play is most delightful. I will most certainly read more of your work. Well done.

this is a great poem. it showed to me pointless behavior and the result of it. a funny ass story and an even better poem. the visuals were great. the subject was awesome. and yes i do like this poem.

Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
