Hickory, dickory, dock. Jerry the mouse ran up the clock Tom smelled him from afar Jumped up on top like a star. Jerry as always was quite wise. And with a rod struck Tom’s eyes. The cat fell nastily on the clock And received a decisive knock. But alas the clock fell to the ground. Mammy Two Shoes with a broom chased Tom around. Jerry slinked into the kitchen for cheese Cheddar, mozzarella, stilton and more of these. But Mammy Two Shoes mad at Tom’s disaster fling, With a broom chased him to make him sing. Then threw him in the garden quite dark, Let Spike bully dog ran after him with a bark. 14 March 20211 Nursery Rhyme 2 Poetry Contest Sponsored by: Eve Roper With apologies to Agatha Christie's for use of her great detective book Hickory, Dickory Dock.

When reading children's nursery rhymes to my children and grandchildren I realized just how dark some of them were. The children don't notice this until they are older. I enjoyed your entry Victor. I hope you are well? Blessings xxoo

Tossing Tom into the garden so Spike can chase him was pretty mean. Still, I think some children would get the message that it's unfair to pick on smaller children. The story behind the poem is a delight, Victor! Best wishes in Eve's contest. Hugs, Carolyn

Cute one Victor. Tom & Jerry were two of my favorites as a child. Tom seemed to prefer chasing after Tweety Bird more than Jerry Mouse though. This one brought back memories. Good Stuff. Hope you win. God Bless, JB
