Fabulous Blog Event Participants
Jill chased Jack up the hill
to push him down the well;
Jack fell down and then he drown,
and Jill was motivated to run faster.
Belly, belly, open up,
I want to eat your meat and drink your blood!
Then I’ll howl at the Moon,
Eating eyes with a non-silver spoon!
Ring around the Rosie
Pockets full of poppies
When at last she begins to sleep
Into her brain dark dreams will creep
And ’til the rising of the sun
Those wicked dreams will have such fun.
Jack was nimble, Jack was quick,
Jack slit a throat,
red ick ick ick.
Jill was chubby, hell Jill was fat,
Jack slit her throat
and that was that.
Jack was crafty, Jack was fly,
Jack slit Jill’s throat,
no one did cry.
Jack was nimble, Jack was quick,
but someone slit Jack’s throat,
no ain’t that slick?
Willie pushed his sister Nell,
down the family drinking well.
Mother lost her darling daughter,
now we sterilize our water.
Little boy blue,
Go haunt your strangler;
He snuck up on you
And lassoed you like a wrangler.
Your face is the color of blueberry.
Make him pay,
Drag him to the cemetery,
Where he can decay.
Hickory dickory dock,
the mouse pulled out a Glock,
he killed the cat
and that was that —
except that the cat had eight lives left and so he took his Smith and Wesson out and blasted that rodent six ways to hell!
