__Sing a Song Of Specters __

 

Sing a Song of Sixpence,
A bag full of Rye,
Four and twenty Naughty Boys,
Baked in a Pye!

 

When the pie was opened,
The boys began to sing;
Wasn’t that a dainty dish,
To set before the king?

The king was in his counting house,
trouncing little Johnny;
The queen was in the parlour,
milking all there mommies.

The maid was in the garden,
washing bloody clothes;
When down came a blackbird
And pecked off her nose.

They sent for the king’s doctor,
to sew it back again;
The king chewed it, such a sweat,
he said she was too vain.

The boys sang such commotion,
that rattled the kings crown;
piercing screams ghostly chorus,
freezing the court in bounds.

 

The queen screamed, “Stop the specters!”

Milk rain began to fall;

Flooding the garden courtyard,

And drowned the whole cabal!

This is the best nursery-rhyme-conversion I've read so far from anybody for Momzilla's contest. You seem to have been bitten by the nursery rhyme bug lately. I think you're on to something big with this nonsense. Can't wait to watch what unfolds between now & Halloween. I think the creepy motif suits you like a dandy (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
