Georgie Porgie 2014

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.

Thank you Norah
From a nursery rhyme to a common tale of establishment crime
- "Quis custodiet ipsos custodes? " (who will police the police?)
We are torn between wanting to give them the powers to make us safe while putting ourselves at their mercy.
Should be published in Punch, Gee.

Loved, loved, loved this! You definitely updated Georgie Porgie and this is probably a true story somewheres.

Thank you Carol
ha! this one nose dived into the deep, dark end. in the fourth line our hero went from mild mannered but terrible kisser to full on groping rapist with a hint of Lenny to him. I laughed and then was sad for him. poor molesterer.

Very good. Dark... But very good. I've written a couple of similarly dark poems but wasn't sure how they'd be received on this site. I'm new you see.

I should have said darkly comic lol
Georgie's all over the news now. Like he never was in life. How awful is it that it takes a tragedy like this for today's society to take notice. There will be interviews now on Good Morning Britain with all kinds of experts who really know nothing and everyone will have an opinion on poor Georgie's state of mind.
Personally I am not a great fan of puddings such as the one tagged exhibit A and certainly not one's that have had a thumb in them. Someone from food hygene will cop for it now. And quite right too. Perhaps poor Georgie's tragic death will have done some good after all. Signed Outraged Pie eater Wigan.

Wow, I'll say it's updated! I loved the original and love this one, too. And as tradition dictates, it contains a good helping of pathos.

New and improved for the world we live in today. A much more cynical world to the carefree days of singing this in the playground, which would surely be banned now under at least 23 decrees of the human rights act. Bloody spoilsports. :)

Aye, life was easier when we were but bairns laddie. Cheers Nemo
If kissing girls and making them cry were offenses deserving of prosecution, I would, even now, be stagnating in some decidedly unpleasant lock-up.
Your georgie-porgie rendition makes this vintage nursery rhyme meaningful, relevant and darkly amusing.
Nice work, Gee!
