REALITY RHYMES

Little Jack Horner
sat in a corner
suffering from a severe
narcissistic personality disorder.

Old King Cole
was a merry old soul
and a merry old soul was he,
until he died from a combination
of cirrhosis of the liver
and emphysema.

Little Miss Muffet
sat on a tuffet
eating her curds and whey,
and had a blood cholesterol
count of well in excess of 250.

Four and twenty blackbirds
baked into a pie,
and when the pie was opened
the animal rights league
protested mightily.

The king was in his counting house
counting all his money,
the queen was in her parlor
eating bread and honey,
the people were in the streets
demanding social justice.
