The Six Blind Men and The Deer

It was six men of Ockendon,

They were very smart in mind,

Went to see the dainty deer,

(Though all of them were blind),


The first approached the deer,

And happening to stroke,

Against its soft and silky skin,

And said: “‘Tis mighty clear,

The wonder of a deer is

Very like a cushion!”


The second, feeling the antlers,

Cried, “Hmm, what have I felt?

So smooth and curved and sharp?”

His voice began to melt,

“This wonder of a deer is very like a branch!”


The third crouched down,

And began to moan,

“Ho, what’s this so round?

As curved as a cone?

This wonder of a deer is

Very like a stone!”


The fourth pressed the nose,

Standing on his tip-toes,

Yelled “How I am cross!

All of you jabber but

I have got the answer!

This wonder of a deer is

Very like some moss!”


The fifth felt the tail,

Tight in his fists,

Bawled “Do you all see mist?

This deer is in my grasp!

As I can feel, this deer

It’s like a bunch of grass!”


The sixth rubbed the legs,

And happening to shout,

“WOW! This is thin and thick!

This wonder of a deer is

Very like a stick!”


And so these men of Ockendon,

Built the thought of a deer,

Each in his own opinion,

But they weren’t so very clear,

Though all were in the right,

And all were in the wrong!

The Blind Aliens And The Unicorn

There were six blind aliens from planet Mars,

Who travelled to Earth,

In their red rocket cars.

Seeking a unicorn big and bold,

They shall bring it back to Mars and be given gold.


The first alien approached the creature,

“Well hello nice to meet ya!”

The slimy green alien reached out with his hand,

As the wind picked up and covered him in sand.

The horn was like a silver power drill,

He beckoned the others to come and feel.


The second alien approached the beast,

He would get to touch one body part at least.

He reached out for the tangled tail,

His face going really pale,

“My, my! This is no tail it’s a lady’s wig!”

There’s always someone that has to have a dig.


The third alien stumbled across the snout,

Her face turning into a pout.

Feeling around the unicorn’s mouth,

The lady alien was filling with doubt,

“If you allow I may ask,

Surely this is a flask!”


The fourth alien,

Running her fingers through the unicorn’s hair,

She felt its muscles tensing,

Like a wooden chair.

The unicorn’s heart beating loudly,

The alien standing proudly.


The fifth alien’s walk turned into a stumble,

Then his words turned into a mumble.

“You call these legs,

You old bogs,

Cleary they are just wooden logs!”


The sixth and last alien appeared,

Then she busted out in tears,

“Please let me!

I just want to touch the ears!”

“OUCH! These are like spikes!”

She screamed with all her might.



Six Blind Men Of Ockendon

There were six blind men of Ockendon

who went to see the lion.

(even though they were blind)

They might use their mind.


The first man went to the mane

“I think this is the main structure

This doesn’t feel like a willow but

It feels like a pillow”.


The second approached

“The body is so soft”

The man coughed

“it feels like a pile of



The third tip-toed to

The legs as the lion begged

“whoa that feels soft

And sturdy”.

“It feels like those

Fluffy pencil cases”.


The forth ran into the tail

The man wailed “oh my lord but this

Feels like a cord”.


The fifth has slid into

The ears “this felt like

Gears like a pipe-cleaner”.

The sixth walked into the paws

“wow, this lion did a lot of work

And knocked his paws, it’s like a rock.
