There was a guy named Balladeer,
He was a clumsy Poet Person,
Two left arms and two left feet,
The clumsiest man you'd ever meet.

Each step he took, he fell down twice,
He tripped and stumbled all through life,
Accidents that couldn't happen,
Were Balladeer's daily pattern.

Now you may doubt and you may scoff,
But he fell in and he fell off,
Everything you'd care to mention,
Although it wasn't his intention.

One day in spring he fell again,
In love this time, with clumsy Nan,
Her two left feet and two left arms,
He thought her most appealing charms.

Of course you'd have no doubt at all,
That they were married in the fall,
And at the altar said, "I do,"
While falling down a time or two.

A honeymoon of carefree bliss,
They fell off "that" and fell off "this"
But they fell more in love than ever,
Having accidents together.

Weeks of love, of joy and rapture,
Bruises, cuts, a tiny fracture,
Sweet memories shared of true romance
Traveling home by ambulance.

But now here comes the tragic part,
A bit to break the hardest heart,
They both were fell on by a horse,
It was an accident of course

Life's ups and downs are unremitting,
Their end was sad but strangley fitting,
An ending flat, yet sort of neat,
The horse ya see had four left feet!


(I found this poem in my dad's stuff..written about one of his kids...(I won't mention which one), I don't think he wrote it either, so I "Toeragged" it a little....and posted it for my friend Balladeer)

ROFLMAO! I love it Toerag! "Traveling home by ambulance"-I think that's great!

P.S. Hmm, wonder who your dad's poem was written about?

I see nothing funny about this poem. You have attacked me, Nan, a horse and my ability to keep my balance. Just because my favorite season is Fall is no reason for you to treat me this way. Just because I like to go on trips a lot does not justify this behavior from you. I have at least three bones which have never been broken and one of them is my middle finger which is in use at the present time. You leave me no choice but retaliation, which is abhorrent to me. Oops, sorry. Abhorrent means I don't like it.
The only other thing I can say is that I'm sitting here ROFLMAO, you dirty bum!

ROFL Toerag!!! That really had me in stitches especially as I have two friends to whom that poem is so TOTALLY well matched!! Even the horse bit!
I wonder if you mind if I use it at their upcoming wedding? I would change bits of course... May I? If you say no, I will understand of course.
I just loved it!
