Two Wongs Don't Make A Wright - Poem by Spock the Vegan

Mr. Hing climbed over a garden wall.
It was easy ‘cause he was very tall.
But he caught his pants on a garden rung
and almost changed his name to Mr. Hung.

Mrs. Wong was on the other side.
"I need help" Hing did confide.
"OK" said Mrs. Wong, as she rang a gong.
Out of the back came Mr. Wong.

He was a Sumo wrestler wearing a thong.
"How can we help you? " asked Mr. Wong.
"You can't" said Hing, "I need Mr. Wright.
He's a lawyer, and I'm in a dreadful plight."

"You sure are, you're in the yard of Wong,
and trespassing as you did is very wrong."
So if YOU are ever in such a plight,
Remember two Wongs don't make a Wright.

Topic(s) of this poem: crime, garden, humor, humour, wrong vs. right

    Very funny. One of favorite jokes goes like this (and you have to tell it, not write it, to really make it work) :
    If two wrongs, don't make a right, what do two Wrights make?
    answer: An airplane.

    Very clever play on words.
    Nicely written, nicely rhymed,
    Like the children's Mother Gosses,
    Clever lines here you will find,
    That may even blow your mind
