Nursery Rhyme Redo: Little Bo Peep



 Little Bo Peep had too many sheep
And the sheriff came to impound them
He locked them away for a year and a day
And dared Bo Peep to find them


Late night produces some strange thoughts, and so this is the first installment of my rewritten nursery rhymes.

  1. Linda,

    This is so clever. I really liked it. Do you plan to continue this as a series. I hope so:~)

    Well done.

    Have a great weekend!

  2. Love this idea and this is funny, however the musician in me needs another syllable in the second line. How about this;

    "Little Bo Peep had too many sheep
    And the sheriff came ('round) to impound them
    He locked them away for a year and a day
    And dared Bo Peep to find them"

    Or should I mind my own business? haha!

  3. Sara- Thank you! I had fun coming up with it. I have some more on tap for later. I hope you get your site issues straightened out soon. Enjoy your weekend - I hear it is supposed to be stormy across the South.

    meleah rebeccah- Thank you. I am glad you thought it was funny.

    Stafford Ray- I'm glad you like my twisted nursery rhyme. I suppose your added word does make it a bit more "musical", and musical is something I'm not. I have enjoyed your poetry and appreciate your input.

  7. I do have more in store, and it is sweet that you taught it to your child. The other kids (or their moms) may wonder where that came from.
