# how can this be?

twelve pears hanging high
twelve men passing by
each took a pear and left eleven hanging there.

how can eleven pears be left?

The men shared the initial pear among each other leaving the 11 on the tree.

did they all pass the same pear about ??

"Each" was the name of one of the men passing by.

Eleven was the name of one of the riders, prob had an affair with seven's wife and got lynched - hence hanging there . .

Or the pear farmer spotted em and broke out his AK and mowed the pear theives down . . . one got away . .

beacuse there are 24 "pears" 12 pairs of pears =24
each took 1 pear, meaning the other pair is left so 11 is let. yes?

pairs of pears?
