FUNNY / SILLY POEMS

Mary had a Little Lamb dirty

Mary Had a Little lamb

  This is nothing more than a silly poem based on the original nursery rhyme, and using the same rhyme and rhythm pattern.     Mary had a little lamb Its fleece was dirty black

mary had a little lamb alternative

Mary and her Little Lamb

This alternative story of Mary and her little lamb includes the original simile and a new metaphor.  Other than that, is just a silly poem using the same rhyme and rhythm pattern, but telling an entirely different story with not quite the same pleasantries as the original nursery rhyme!

Little Miss Muffet alternative

Little Miss Muffet (Alternative)

Incy Wincy Alternative

Incy Wincy Spider (Alternative Nursery Rhyme)

    Incy Wincy spider climbed up the spout Down came a paper, and gave him such a clout Out came the raindrops and washed him down the drain Now Incy Wincy spider will not be back again.
