“I’ll have what she’s having.”
Nursery rhymes are inherently whimsical in nature and invoke a sense of playfulness in us. However, I decided to do alternative interpretations of some famous and classic nursery rhymes like Humpty Dumpty, Mary had a Little Lamb, The Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe and Little Miss Muffet. The overarching theme was about different characters having different things. Humpty Dumpty had a fall, The Old Woman had demons in her, Mary had a little lamb chop and Little Miss Muffet had an allergic reaction and obviously, a very bad day.
“The Fall of a King”
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall,
All of his subjects were happy and gay,
For they could have scrambled eggs the next day.
“The Demon children”
That Old Woman who lived in a shoe,
had so many children she didn’t know what to do.
She tried praying and cleansing,
The priest she did call,
But she couldn’t get rid of them,
They lived inside her after all.
“Mary had a Little Lunch”
Mary had a little lamb, little lamb, little lamb
Mary had a little lamb,
Some fries and soda too.
Little Miss Muffet sat on a tuffet,
Eating her curds and whey,
She started to swell, had diarrhea as well,
So an ambulance came and took her away.
