A Conundrum

     Okay, good Saturday to all of you. I hope everyone has had a nice break from poemsandponderings. But, Heeee’sss Baaackk! Yes indeed, back to abnormal. And to start us off after the hiatus, a conundrum, a poser, a puzzle for you. I cannot take credit for it, nor can I say I got the answer right. However, I truly believe that you, my learned and erudite readers will  be able to figure it out. I thought about holding back on the answer until tomorrow but no, it is below..Good Luck.


You are on a Horse, galloping at a constant speed.

On your right side is a sharp drop off.

And on your left side is an Elephant traveling at the same speed as you.

Directly in front of you is a galloping Kangaroo

and your horse is unable to overtake it.

Behind you is a Lion running at the same speed as you and the Kangaroo.

What must you do to safely get out of this highly dangerous situation?

(See answer below)

Wait for it..

Wait for it…

ok? No wait for it……

Get your drunk ass off the merry-go-round.

    Gee, maybe that’s why I haven’t been on a Merry-Go-Round in decades!!!

    Problems like this went away when I got sober, but I can appreciate the “conundrum”.

    Thanks for a fine piece of work!

    • God Bless you in your endeavor. Sometimes the apparatus(merry-go-round) isn’t necessary to experience the same effects.
      Thanks for the read and the comment. Keep them coming I appreciate any feedback.
