Nursery Rhymes You Didn’t Learn

For all of you struggling with your writing projects!  Here are the rhymes you didn’t learn in school to help you.  Enjoy!

Hickory dickory dock,

the mouse ran off with my plot!

The clock struck one,

the writer was done!

The bird pooped on my plot!

The clock struck two

What’s a writer to do?

The dog chewed through my plot!

The clock struck three

Guess it wasn’t to be.

Jack and Jill went up the hill

to fetch another chapter.

Jack fell down

bringing the pages ’round

and Jill came scribbling faster.


Old Mother Hubbard

went to the cupboard

to give the poor dog a pen.

When she came there

the cupboard was bare

and so the poor pup wrote no end.

    Little Miss Muffet
    Sat on her tuffet,
    Drinking her Chardonnay.
    Along came a child
    Running completely wild
    And frightened her story idea away!

  5. Your posts are always so good. Here’s a nursery rhyme

    Baa, baa, black sheep,
    Have you a story?
    Yes sir, yes sir,
    It’s full of glory
    About a little black sheep,
    Who’s so very sweet,
    Except I don’t know the end
    Other than he needs a friend.

    Corny, I know, but it’s the best I could do lol.
