IT COULD HAVE BEEN YOU

By Josie Whitehead

It Could Have Been You

I read of a man who once lived a strange life -

And thank goodness he had neither children nor wife.

     He lived in a cage in a very large zoo

     And in the next cage?  Well it could have been you!

 

Another strange man lived deep down in the sea -

And it’s cold in the sea, you can well believe me!

     And who do you think was living there too?

     No, I didn’t go, but it could have been you!

 

A cannibal sat and he cooked Sunday lunch

And when it was finished he started to munch,

      But the meat was quite tough and a problem to chew.

      Well I know I’m still here, so it could have been you!

What strange ideas poets have, don't they?  If you were reading my poem, then I am sure you were not the one that the cannibal ate for his dinner.  I hope you laughed at this silly poem.  Josie
