Nursery Rhymes have taken a dark turn...
Header for new contest

*Candy3*


*Candy2*

There are plenty of Nursery Rhymes that appear innocuous on the surface but have dark origins.
For example, Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary (1744)


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



“Hush, Little Baby”

Hush, little Baby, don’t say a word,
Mama’s gonna buy you a Mockingbird.

And if that mockingbird don’t sing,
Mama’s gonna buy you a diamond ring.

And if that diamond ring turns brass,
Mama’s gonna buy you a looking glass.

And if that looking glass gets broke,
Mama’s gonna buy you a billy goat,

And if that billy goat won’t pull,
Mama’s gonna buy you a cart and a bull.

And if that cart and bull turn over,
Mama’s gonna buy you a dog named Rover.

And if that dog named Rover won’t bark,
Mama’s gonna buy you a horse and a cart.

And if that horse and cart fall down,
You’ll still be the sweetest little baby in town.
