Nursery Rhymes part II

Welcome Poetry Lovers

Dobby and I thought we’d continue our nursery rhyme theme with some more traditional pieces. Clever and wonderful poet, Trisha Broomfield, has come up with a hilarious rewrite of this classic.

Ding Dong Dell

Pussy’s in the well

Who put her in

She clambered down

in search of gin.

Who pulled her out?

She climbed the rope

worse for wear

clutching a bottle of stout

Isn’t that a wonderful piece?

Funny, that one always unnerved me as a child, yet there’s far sinister nursery rhymes than that. Thank you so much, Trisha. Great piece.

Now you may notice a certain pattern here. How Dobby gets to take centre stage in all these rhymes, and the next piece is no exception.

This traditional piece really is an odd one indeed. As you will see, the dog is firmly replaced. Read on

Hey diddle diddle

the cat and the fiddle

the cow jumped over the moon

the little cat laughed to see such fun

and the dish ran away with the spoon

Wasn’t that fun?! Any interpretations of timeless pieces are most welcome. Thanks for tuning in, we’ll be back with more Slagg’s diminishing verses.
