I'm looking for the author of this nonsensical poem.
"One dark night in the middle of the day
Two dead boys went out to play
drew their knives and shoot each other
a deaf policeman heard the noise
and went to investigate the two dead boys"
Can anyone tell me the author or give me a clue how to find them?
Thanks in advance!
The version I learned went like this:
One dark night in the middle of the day
two dead boys got up to play
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 blind man to referee
a paralyzed 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 those two dead boys
if you don't believe this story is true
ask the blind man
he saw it too
