Norwegian Troll

If I had more than two hands
Would I be twice as effective?
Guess not-it would be double trouble

If I had more than two legs
Would I ran twice as fast?
Guess not-it would be double trouble

If I had more than one head
Would I be twice as clever?
Guess not-I would look like a Norwegian Troll

    I have two sitting behind me, one from Bodo and one from Trondheim, when we were stationed in Vaernes. They're part of the family now.

    Enjoyed reading your humor..I guess two heads on one person might come up with the same ideas and could think of more ways to carry them out..No, not really for siamese twins think differently..Thanks for the kind review of my work..Sara

    hahahaha. For what was this poem? If just for fun, it succeeded!!! And thanks for your comments on my stepdad. His slow coming death was horrible! I would not wish it on anybody.
