A Town Called Mistake



Have you ever heard of A town called Mistake Folks get things wrong From the moment they wake No one's been right Since the town was first named And it's not on a map Though it still is quite famed To put it on the map Would have been a mistake Now hang on one moment Now give me a break That means by making A mistake it'd be there I'm so damn confused I'm pulling my hair If you've got this thing figured Then please help my out My mind's all ferschimmled What's this all about Have you ever heard of A town called Mistake Please write if you have Coz my head really aches © Jack Ellison 2013

    There's another one called I Don't Know and it seems that's where I come from. Do you think so, too?

    I think I have heard of it, it's made up of only husbands and the town next to it is known as Always Right. Just kidding ladies! Thanks for the chuckle Jack.

    A 10 point perfect read... They must be related to us here at Troll Lake... I bet we're not on any map either... LOL... But perhaps we will be some day if Dragon and the Trolls get famous... You never know... Now that would be frightening!

    Ha! This was a fun read. I imagine the population there would thrive on Opposite Day. ;-)

    Guess you found out it was a mistake to stay in "Mistake"! LOL About my hair, Cathie agrees so I would suffer a fate worse than death if I was to tear it out! LOL Yummy higs, Jacko xoxox

    Ha Ha, lol my friend, this is quite the hilarious write! I really enjoyed reading this amazing poem this morning! This is a funny piece, town of Mistake, that would be a definite mistake to make naming a town that! I can just see all the people in that town making more mistakes than normal people in other towns just solely by the name of the town! What a brilliant poem, Great Work!!
