Nurse the Rhymes

Little Miss Muffet sat on her tuffet eating vegetable one day, She warned Jack and Jill about the hill,but they still fell from idle play, Emergency call the Fairy Godmother,tell her hurry with no delay, She brought them band-aid and pain pills,she always saves the day, The Seven Dwarfs gave some helping hands,taking home seven pails of water, On the way to Jack house they met Snow White and Red Riding Hood her daughter, They told them about the Big Bad Wolf,that the wood-cutter slaughter, Happy to hear the news,the Easter Bunny gave everyone a chocolate egg, Jack and Jill got brawta, Hip-hip-horray,now we can roam free without that trouble maker, And although Jack and Jill were battered and bruised, The journey home was fun and laughter,,, brawta,,,,a Jamaican slang that means,,,extra Been away for awhile but I am back my friends,,,

RICHARD,, Congratulations, . I hope you don't mind your placement in my contest. Out of past experience, I know many don't like when I don't have a first or second placement. However, this is my judgment, and it only feels right, to place each poem, in the order I would have, as if there had been a first or second placement. Believe me, I'm not taking from you or your winning poem. Hugs, and enjoy my blog, "Conundrum" if you'd like. Have yourself a sweet day. ...always Linda
