The Village Idiot

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 14 February 2021, village.

Village idiot, easy to stump,
He was fun to wind up, what a chump,
When I claimed, like a flea,
Could jump higher than a tree,
He replied, “don’t be daft, trees can’t jump”

    1. I wanted something that I knew everybody would understand, just to get the “village idiot” bit across. Actually it took a bit of thought because so much of humour has national boundaries. But obviously once thought of, I built the rhyme around it. Please, read it to your grandchild and let me know the verdict!
