The Headless Horseman


The headless horseman
Was out for his nightly ride
When he spotted a woman
That looked right for his hide

So he rode right up
And wacked off her head
Before she hit the ground
She was as surely dead

He then stopped his horse
Got off and picked up her head
And stuck it on his neck
Where the pumpkin had been instead

He didn't know what to think
For now he could finally see
He jumped up and down
He was finally filled with glee

It was about then you see
He was feeling something strange
Things started churning inside
For, the headless horseman just had a sex change

    very funny, if I don't think rationally and ask you how he managed to see her without his eyes, as he is a headless..Still the poem is nicely worded! Instead you should have written he was blindfolded, so the nose could have smelt the woman... (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
