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

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!

On Top of Spaghetti
written by Tom Glazer

On top of spaghetti all covered with cheese
I lost my poor meatball when somebody sneezed

It rolled off the table, it rolled on the floor
And then my poor meatball rolled out of the door

It rolled in the garden and under a bush
And then my poor meatball was nothing but mush.

The mush was as tasty as tasty could be,
And early next summer it grew to a tree.

The tree was all covered with beautiful moss
It grew great big meatballs and tomato sauce.

So if you eat spaghetti all covered with cheese,
Hold on to your meatball and don’t ever sneeze.
