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,

Jake.

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.
