Focused on items in little demand...and a few I’d picked up for a song…

But the crooked little man
In his crooked little house,
Who caught this crooked mouse
After Humpty Dumpty's fall,
Could not prevent the coming
Down of baby, cradle and all!

Children were safe wherever they go
Playing and skipping ‘til way after dark
Dancing and singing in the play park

Ring-a-ring-a-rosy

Hush-a-push-a
Along came a...

I know 'twas a tuffet; learned that in school
But Muffy was the tart
Who broke the spider's heart

Sat in a corner
I’m huddled up in my usual spot outside
Cold as a dog’s nose
On the old park bench, eating air pies
Drinking crushed sun, watching for a sign
Counting days, waiting for rain
There are signs everywhere, the crowd
In every...

A rhyme crime
A musing Mary, quite stationary
sitting with her laptop so still
thinks of limo cars, Broadway stars
and her dream house on the hill

Jill and Jack laid in their sack
wondering about Mary on their hill
making hay about "will...

Mary had a little lamb that soon became someone's chops
That's a lie, a mouse never runs up a clock, only in the Boondocks

Nursery rhymes in today’s times....

With a brand new twist....

Chicken Little stared up at the sky.
