Mary had a porcupine

Mary had a porcupine
Its spines were sharp as knives
And everywhere that Mary went 
Kids ran for their lives

It followed her to school one day
She didn't pay attention
All her classmates ran away
And Mary got detention

    Sometimes the inspiration to write poems just dries up. Then I go on a spree for a while until the next drought. I am glad though that you enjoy my poems. Thank you.

    Dear Jon This is a gem and I haven't heard the word detention in a long time. In my brothers' school they called it Jug for some reason. Kathy

    This is adorable. Hope the inspiration will lead me toward writing some children's poetry. I've been thinking about it. Very witty and creative.

    this is AWESOME. I think you did a fantastic parody of that nursery rhyme. Why the heck wasn't this one in the Nursery rhyme contest?
