Made his act profound

As whole town heard sound of YAHOO

Did he jump or did he just yell? A poem (limerick in this case) is subject to interpretation, you know.

My interpretation is that he didn't jump and he was quite happy that she left.... but I might be wrong! It's nice to be able to have your own vision of the situation :-)

He may have jumped

Or just given a yell.

Or she lies below on the ground

At the spot where she fell. ;)

Reminds me of the words of a song to breakup is to makeup. Wonder if he thought about that?
