A Cautionary Nursery Rhyme

Solomon Grundy, Solomon Grundy, sniffer of glue, when offered, on Monday. The Tuesday was hash, a whopping great spliff; on Wednesday took coke, a generous sniff. For Thursday some crack, the dodgiest brand, and Friday’s dope needle was quite second-hand. When Saturday came, a massive OD; on Sunday it ended, this hedonist spree. In spite of the blurb you find on a packet, right up to the end, he thought he could hack it! ~
For Debra's 'Nursery Rhyme' Competition.

    Wow Charles, you've weaved this twisted nursery rhyme to the bitter end. It's where the drug road goes. jail, mindless, or dead. love, Kathy P.S. Your poem is also very well rhymed and metered. A pleasing to the ear.
