Latest post of the previous page:

I know, I know!

I was trying so hard to think up anything that I forgot the rules!

Anyway, why the fingers smiley, I saw your error but was not one of those who pointed it out!

I know, Dave, I know. I'm just not as decent as I ought to be. :twisted:

Little Miss Muffett
Sits on her tuffett
Munching her roll with her coffee
There comes a huge spider
It sits down beside her
She’s frightened enough to run off - eee!

Surely I have more to do with my life than this ....................

[There was an old woman who lived in a shoe]

Once this old person lived in her tent
With numerous children shouting, hell bent
She boiled up some broth the silly old fool
Hit them quite soundly, then sent them to school.

Why should we live if, full of woe
We get no time to see stuff grow

Baa baa black goat

Baa baa black goat
Trust you got some wool
No Sir, no Sir; no bags full.
Not for your boss
Not for your nana
Nor for that tiny lad
Who wants a banana.

Little Bo Peep

Little Bo Peep’s now lost her sheep
She doesn’t know where to find them
Best let them be, to come home free
Bringing their things behind them.

Molly owned this wee young sheep
with wool quite white, like snow
Well, everywhere young Molly went
wee Sheepy went in tow

It followed her to school one morn
which broke one of the rules
resulting in much merriment
to see Sheepy in school

The school mistress turned it out,
but still it lingered nigh
Holding on until the time
when Molly trotted by

"Why does that sheep love Molly so?"
the curious children cry.
"Why, Molly loves it too, you know."
the mistress did reply.

Damn - I thought I'd double-checked. Correction: "Why does the sheep love Molly so?" :)

I'll do an easy one tonight:


Ladybug, ladybug fly away home,
Your house burnt down and your children are gone,
All except one,
By the name of Ann, who concealed herself under the frying pan

Just testing. Meant to say 'your progeny are gone' :wink:

I owned one little nut tree,
Nothing would it produce
But one silver nutmeg
plus something coloured puce

Some Portuguese princesses
dropped in to see me,
Just so they could climb
Up my little nut tree.

Georgie Porgie pudding and pie
Kissed the girls so they did cry
When the girls begin their fun
Georgie Porgie home does run

Jock be nimble
Jock be quick
Jock jump over
The nightlight stick


rubbish, I know! :smile:

Ban a towel,
Not one but any towel.
We came from the sea wet and naked,
And so, why are we dry and caked?

rules are made to be broken;

But having made this thread muddy,
Its rules I will now study :wink:

Jock be nimble
But Jock don't be quick.
Jock, kindly conserve
Your tickling stick

Oh, what fun!

Ozzie Monkhouse
with apologies to Percy Bysshe Shelley

I met one journeyer from countries lost
Who told me: “Two huge, trunkless legs of stone
Rise in the desert. Close by, in the dust,
This sinking broken phizog lies, whose frown,
Whose wrinkled lip, whose sneer of fierce disgust,
Suggest its sculptor well those tempers clocked
Which yet survive, etched on these lifeless things,
The fingers mocking them, the ticker stocked.
While on the plinth these words come into scope --
‘I go by Ozzie Monkhouse, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, then lose hope!’
Nothing beside is left. Behind the rot
Of this colossus, empty, without slope,
The lone dunes stretch into the furthest dot.”
