I’ve finally finished the poem and will print it in it’s entirety here. It was a fun exercise! L.
There are zombies on the loose
And they’re after Mother Goose!
They have eaten Mary’s lamb
And turned Jack Horner into spam!
All that’s left of Mother Hubbard,
You could fit inside her cupboard!
But they left her dog alone,
Cause he’s skinny like his bone.
Olde King Cole has lost his crown
As the zombies chase him down.
A fine meal that king will make
Maybe in a zombie cake!
Itsy bitsy spider fled
She found a zombie in her web.
Mary Mary cried “No, No,”
As that zombie grabbed her toe.
Humpty Dumpty was a snack
For the zombies when he cracked.
In a fry pan he now sets
Mmmmm, a tasty omelette!
The mad Goose called Jack and Jill
And together they went up the hill
Where on the top her army sat
With Dr Seuss and cat in hat!
Bo Peep’s sheep is armed and ready
And his hoof is firm and steady.
Peep herself favors a whip
Which she cradles at her hip.
Peter Peter wields a mace
Just to hit a zombie face.
Puss n’boots is standing tall
Hoping that the zombies fall.
The old woman left her shoe
As she joined the Goose’s crew.
With her children by her side
They hope to turn the zombie tide.
Simple Simon threw his pie
And hit a zombie in the eye.
But the zombie threw it back
Defusing Simon’s weak attack.
Rhyming here and rhyming there
That old Goose is everywhere.
Zombies scream and hold their ears
For it ‘s her bad poems that they fear.
“Enough!” did cry the zombie king
Your bad rhymes pack quite a sting!
My hoard and I will leave your land
And go and hassle Peter Pan!
Mother Goose did dance with glee
As she watched the zombies flee.
Now all is well in Nursery land
For they vanquished the zombie band!
