Children's poem telling different versions of traditional nursery rhymes
|Mixed Up Nursery Rhymes
Eennie and Meenie were twins,
then Mo came along for a spin,
they caught a tiger by his toes,
but now Mo is missing his nose!.
Jack and Jill were sister and brother,
wherever one was, you found the other,
running to fetch water in a pail,
they tripped up the hill and both fell!
The three little pigs built a house,
but the only resident was a mouse,
the big, bad wolf let out a shriek,
the mouse jumped yelling, “EEEEK!”
Now it is time for you to go to sleep,
no more sounds, not a even a peep,
dream about the poem you just read,
learn it all before you get out of bed!
