A CANARD FOR NO EAR

Ladies and gentlemen, breathing or deceased

Let me tell you a story I am ignorant about

You need not listen,

just pay rapt attention

It is a genuine story,

fake  within and without

 

On a shining day, in the midst of the night

The sun rose late from great west side

With their backs turned,  two men faced each other

Hands dipped in pockets,  they shot each other

 

A lame man ran to the bloodshed funfair

His numb legs sprinting fast like Usain Bolt's

'O Lord of mercy! Proclaimed a dumb woman

"Let us call the thieves" suggested a brilliant policeman

A deaf medical doctor heard the gunshot

From his clinic located inside the toilet

Where he was dilligently counselling a barren woman,

 on how to nurse a baby

Off he went, crawling down the ocean

This I witnessed while in a tipsy state, stable and upright

 

Watching the scene from the corner of a roundtable

I took a hot drink, fresh from the refrigerator

Sat on a bare floor after pulling up a chair

 

This is the end of my continuous tale

If you doubt it,  don't file a query

You can curiously ask the old man if it is true

Believe me,  he saw it all happen

I know some will cry, while laughing at the tale

You shouldn't ask me why,

 because I don't know the answer.
