The goal of this contest is to take the innocent Nursery Rhyme provided and turn it dark, twisted, and scary!



“The North Wind Doth Blow

The North wind doth blow and we shall have snow,
And what will poor robin do then, poor thing?
He’ll sit in a barn and keep himself warm
and hide his head under his wing, poor thing.
