A Nursery Crime...Georgie Porgie

A Poem by Gee
"

Olde English nursery rhyme updated

"
Georgie Porgie pudding and pie
kissed the girls and made them cry,
the police were called, statements sought,
a danger deemed, he must be caught.

Within the hour he was found
roughly cuffed, punched to the ground,
put in a car, thrown in a cell,
denied a brief so he couldn't tell.

Confused and with a low IQ
Georgie knew what he would do,
and when they opened up his door
he lay there dead upon the floor.

Now the police themselves 'midst public fury,
will face a trial and a twelve man jury.

Extremely well constructed and a good laugh combined. I love this sort of writing, can't say as a youngster that I admired Georgie Porgie, all though I was a fan of Pudding. Good work thanks for sharing. Rod.

What a great way to start a wet Saturdaym smiling, thinking, mooting - but, NOT daring to read other reviews! In spite of you meaning it to be funny-ha-ha, its has a cynical ring to it, a touch of truth, a touch of let's turn red riding hood into a a lady of the woods type! Thanks for the happy stance.. Happy weekend to you and your ladies.

A very tragic turn of events. Which, unfortunately, given the signs of times... I don't know.

At least he wasn't accused of being a violent rapist...?

A lot of arguments and debates; going on about hot-button subjects like this.

Thank you 😊 I found it moving, provocative and maybe, triggering for some.

I also like that you kept true to the rhythm of this beloved nursery rhyme.

Nicely done.

WHOA! This is so unexpected! At first I was thinking, right-on! It's true that some of these "accusations" of late seem to be executed without due process (altho there are some well-deserved castigations, too). Even tho I'm a victim of much sexual abuse in my life, I still don't like seeing the way this is going down for some of the more innocent-seeming encounters. Your poem is the perfect rebuttal, but then I got to the part where he hung himself & the tragedy of that is pretty powerful. Almost overshadows the tongue-in-cheek satire at the end! But all in all, I good ride thru the ups & downs (((HUGS))) fondly, Margie
