my love of poetry including nonsense verse was lost, people like yourselves have reignited my love for it, thanks to one and all. poems about a man who loves to stand upside down.

The curious boy

Why are you eating that sandwich;
Standing on your head?
Is it because its brain food,
While trying not to fill your legs.

I don't mean to stand and stare,
Wouldn't you find it easier,
Sitting on a upside down chair?

When the rain comes,
Falling all around.
Do you find you have to,
Open your umbrella upside down?

He wouldn't answer me,
While i was sitting on the ground.
He just continued munching on his sandwich,
while standing upside down.
