Nursery Rhyme Primed

Tawny Donny wealthy and sly,
kissed the girls and made them cry.
When they told the world their tales
tawny Donny lost his veils.


Day 15, Napowrimo : using Hansel and Gretel and Blackbeard the Pirate as examples, today’s prompt asks us to rewrite a villain’s unfortunate situation. Today, Georgie Porgie’s friend gets caught in a kettle of fish. ILLUSTRATION from Volume One, Poems of Eary Childhood, Child-Craft, published by The Quarrie Corporation, Chicago, in 1947.

    I’m think I’m starting a collection of poems on this topic this NaPoWriMo 2018 🙂 The villain prompt also led me to this person. I haven’t shared it yet.

      As I mentioned, I usually don’t do political satire but just couldn’t resist for this one.

        I’ve written a rare political one too. Not sure yet when I want to post it.
