One dark day, in the middle of the night;

Two dead boys got up to fight;

Back to back they faced each other;

Took their swords and shot each other;

A deaf policeman heard the noise;

And came and shot those two dead boys;

If you don't believe my story's true;

Ask the blind man, he saw it too!













Do you remember hearing this as a child, or maybe a different version?

It's a version of very Old folklore. I remember hearing it as a child, and looking online, many many people were told this (and tons of other versions) as children. It's not a literal poem, it's a backwards poem.

It's much much older than Shel. Although it does sound like something he'd write.....
