Tweedle Dum And Tweedle Dee



Meet Tweedle Dum and Tweedle-Dee Two of a kind they both lived in a tree Way high up on the upper most branch Not afraid of heights but why take a chance I fail to see why they're living up there They don't have a bed, they don't have a chair Must be uncomfortable and hard on the bum Hope they're not bothered by splinters, by gum These guys are strange, they're nincompoops They've never liked living in community groups Independent old souls most all of their lives Some call 'em snobby, these guys they deride Society is made up of all different trolls Some are hot headed with holes in their souls Some are real happy, like those guys the best Sure happy I got that stuff off of my chest Meet Tweedle Dum and old Tweedle-Dee Two of a kind they both lived in a tree If you guys want my opinion and advice Get the hell down here and I won't tell you twice © Jack Ellison 2013

    Hey, sounds like you found some one, like our Kung Poo master... He liked trees too... LOL... Or at least when he was around us, he did... But some Trolls sure can be strange! Ask me about it!

    Love it, love it! The last line made me laugh and reminded me of how my Mom would yell at me in those words if I was doing something stupid. Because, you know, I was 6. =D

    You speak of them like they are children, do you mean for them to be? No matter what, you paint them to be quite the individuals my friend! I don't know if I'd get along with two such independent people! I don't think I'd like to live in a tree, doesn't appeal to me, even if I did have a bed and a chair! I really enjoyed reading this amazing poem this morning! What a wonderful piece, Great Work!!
