Nursery Times

Georgie Porgy pudding and pie
Was trying to think of an alibi.
He should have been in a corner
Sharing pie with little Jack Horner
But he'd been awakened that morn,
By little Boy Blue blowing his horn,
To find he was cuddling little Bo Peep,
Still in his arms and fast asleep.
She'd awakened with a shock
And run of to tend her flock.
He wandered off to the Knave of Hearts
Hoping he'd not finished all those tarts.
He gave a wave to Jack and Jill
As they both ran up the hill.
He heard a yell and turning around
Saw young Jack come tumbling down.
He rushed off to find a miss
Or three or four for him to kiss,
Then spend hours running away
When the boys came out to play.
Life was good most of the time
Here in the land of Nursery Rhyme
Except you had to play your part
Every time some one made a start
And told your tale to the very end
Enough to drive one round the bend.
Georgie Porgy pudding and pie
Rushed off to work with a sigh
Thing could have been worse after all.
Think of poor Humpty sat on his wall.
