A nursery rhyme parody written for the 'Monsters Under The Bed' contest, September 2020.
Mary And The Lamb
Mary had a little lamb,
she loved it, don't cha know,
but someone watched and waited there
for the moment to show.
An axe he held in his right hand,
ready to take a swing;
a perfect murder he had planned,
an ending he would bring.
He loitered on the shady path
and hid behind a tree,
then out he stepped, began to laugh
with mania and glee.
With sub-human strength so mighty
he struck a fatal blow;
the lamb sauntered off quite sprightly
but Mary could not go.
