This is Day 13 of Rena Traxel‘s A to Z Poetry Challenge. Today is M for Mother Goose. Our challenge is to create our own nursery rhyme or write a fractured nursery rhyme. I am using The Itsy Bitsy Spider for my nursery rhyme inspiration. Since The Itsy Bitsy Spider has such a catchy tune, I brought in this baby possum to sing my rewrite of this popular nursery rhyme. (Oh come on…use your imagination!)
An itty bitty possum is there in yonder tree.
She’s in her momma’s pocket with Sammy, Ed, and Bree.
And even though it’s crowded, she doesn’t seem to care
Cause her momma feeds her dinner and takes her everywhere.
