The truth about nursery rhymes

The truth about nursery rhymes

A Poem by Vidya Bacchus

Does it make sense ?

              The truth about nursery rhymes

Nursery rhymes my mother read,

When I was young and they were cool,

Now I'm older though not to say wiser,

The beloved things make no sense.

 

It sounds so suspicious ,

That little Jack horner is in the corner ,

Sticking his thumb in a pie,

And pulling out a cherry....I mean plum.

 

What the hell is an egg doing on a wall?

He must be hard boiled or else all the kings horses,

Seriously they thought the horses were the best choice?

And all the kings men would be making a Humpty Dumpty omelette.

 

Peter ,peter the pumpkin eater ,

Had a wife and could not keep her,

So he called his pumpkin lawyer

And what do you know she got the shell and he got the car.

 

It seems to me that Jack falling and breaking his crown,

Encourages the question"did he fall or was he pushed?"

I can vouch for many a times .

Having an uncontrollable urge to push my Jack down the hill.

lol. cool send me a read review if you do :)
I'm surprised there has been no update on the fairytales...they've updated everything else :). You right they don't have the same meaning they had as a kid but the little toddlers today see them as we did back then. It's just cute to see the wonder in their eyes. Your new fairytales are probably poetry now, like all of the rest of us :). I'll bet you feel that same mystical wonder when you write or read poems...I know I do. Enjoyed your train of thought here.

Hahahaha! I'm in a children's literature class this semester and we talk about children's books and it has caused me to think about the strangeness of nursery rhymes. This piece is great! xD

Nice take on the classics! Even tho they really make no sense, we still quote them and can have fun from all different perspectives, great stuff, humor is always good =)

A creative little gem - these fairytales are a bit vague aren't they?...
Poor Jack - now I'm wondering if he was given a gentle nudge..
Thank you for the smile this morning!
