Be Prepared to Drool

And appreciate the awesome and frustrated poetry that Doret at TheHappyNappyBookseller wrote. It is so swoon-worthy. I want to write like this!

While I'm at it, have you ever heard this poem:

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.
A deaf policeman heard the noise,
and ran to save the two dead boys.
And if you don't believe it's true,
go ask the blind man, he saw it too.

I heard it in The Haunting in Connecticut and pretty much fell in love with its creepy contradictions. Doret's poem is far more serious and relevant, though, so go read it!

I love that contradiction poem. I don't usually like poetry, but that is just clever and amazing! Mind if I borrow it?

I love that poem. I can't remember were I read it but I liked it the first time around and still like it today.
