This week I dredged up a few poems from a series I started a while back that were part of what I was calling my ‘Nother Goose series. Basically my take on some classic nursery rhymes. You can’t beat the classics, but sometimes it’s fun to try. To beat them. I don’t know why I stopped doing these, I remember having fun with them…
Miss Muffet’s daughter
Sat by the water
Eating her sushi with roe.
The fat, hairy spider
That dropped down beside her
Was flattened with one single blow.
A Tragic Ending
The Spoon and the Dish
Had one simple wish:
To wed by the light of the Moon.
They were crushed by the Cow,
So the Dog’s crying now,
And the Cat plays a funeral tune
Humpty Dumpty lay on the ground,
Shell bits and egg yolk spread all around.
Many came running when they heard him fall…
But who put the egg man on top of a wall?
Poetry Friday, a marketplace full of goodness at a price that’s right. Carol Rasco has the roundup over at her place this week. Buy, sell, or window shop, it’s all good on Poetry Friday.
