Bad Goldilocks

A fractured quintet of limericks you get:

Bear family went out for some air
Came back to find Goldilocks there
     Dear abode was all trashed
     Even where the bitch crashed
For this juvenile delinquent affair

Goldilocks was out ripe for a brawl
Humpty Dumpty sat there on the wall
     Invests in some cream
     Joined a douse and a scream
King-sized zabaglione for all

Little Jack Horner sits with his pie
Miss Goldy sticks her thumb in his eye
     Nabs the prize from the child
     One-eyed Jack is now wild 
Proclaiming "What a poor boy am I!"

Quaint old lady in Banbury Cross
Rode up there on a big white cockhorse
     Sporty Goldilock's ride
     Took the opposite side
Underneath that big cockhorse, of course

Virginal innocence in a nightgown
Wee Willie Winkle ran through the town
     Xanthic-haired fervid filly
     Yanks on that wee willie
Zealously, then on Winkle goes down

    hahaha, the way your worked the XYZ into it. For me, I would have to start THERE. think up what my words for the ABC would be at the end before I could even begin. you put a lot of work into this. That is how I like to do mine sometimes,make them even more difficult than the way they are presented, so I admire when i see someone doing that way. WELL done. Doing it limerick style was genius and this deserves a huge win!
