Nursery Rhymes And Fairy Tales Revisited pt. 2

     Please remember that when I posted the first of these, I suggested that the rest of this category could take a down-turn at any time. Here is an example of that.

      Believe me, they get worse,


Hell hath no fury as a woman scorned.

Hell hath no fury as a woman scorned.

Blind Mice And Public Assistance

 There once was a farmer

with a mean, ugly wife

who was handy indeed

with her sharp carving knife.


She’d strop and she’d hone

until it split a hair,

then she went on a rampage

so cruel, and unfair.


For there were three sightless rodents

that bothered her so

who seemed to follow around

wherever she’d go.


She had formed an opinion

in her own strange mind,

that they had an advantage

because they were blind.


 Now she was determined

to show them her might,

so she blew out the candles

and went searching one night.


When she heard them approach

she’d swung without fail

but she’d missed all their heads

and just lopped off their tails.


Oh, those poor mice

with no tails and no sight,

 now need the assistance

of a seeing-eye mite.

    I have no words. Good thing I am not around the farmer’s wife or I would have no eyes or tail either.
