Limerick.64. Argument - Poem by Valsa George

Pointing to the sky, said one- “A loon”
“No”- said the other- “It’s a heron”
The argument ran thus
Amid the aged, unwise
But both were wrong, it was a balloon

    I recollect an Urdu humorist who described an abstract painting. He asked a woman standing with him and watching the painting, Is it a water melon? She replied, You can say, it's sweet and soft skinned, nice to kill the thirst, but it's a woman. (Report) Reply

    Ha.... ha..! This is so interesting Akhtar ji! A modern abstract painting can be interpreted in any manner. Yes, opinions can widely differ!

    Quite amusing argument and possibly indulged in by aged people for the sake of argument only. Obstinacy inducted with ageing takes it's toll many a times and such people enter into argument knowing fully well that they may be wrong.
    Enjoyed the limerick. Thanks for sharing.10 points.
