(TALE FILLED WITH CONTRADICTION)

ONE BRIGHT DAY IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT,
TWO DEAD BOYS GOT UP TO FIGHT.
BACK TO BACK, THEY FACED EACH OTHER,
DREW THEIR SWORD AND SHOT EACH OTHER.
A DEAF POLICEMAN HEARD THE NOISE
CAME AND SHOT THE TWO DEAD BOYS.
IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE THIS TALE IS TRUE,
ASK THE BLIND MAN, HE SAW IT TOO.
