Mary Had a Little Lamb - Silly Verse!

Mary had a little lamb
She chopped it into pieces
Then changed the famous Mary rhyme:
‘I don’t know where yer fleece is.’

Mary had a little lamb
It really was a rascal
But slyly did she feed him up
To be the lambkin Pascal.

Mary had a little lamb
Without a decent moniker
Who cared? For it was only born
for some Billy goat to boniker.

Mary had a little lamb
Well mannered and well-schooled
But all the people wanted was
A lamb un-kilojouled.

Mary had a little lamb
She also had some geese
To France she sent their woolly-stuff
To weave the fleur-de-fleece.

Mary had a little lamb
She dressed it in a dirndl
Threw nutshells in her gathered skirt
And only ate the kirndl.

Mary had a little lamb
She also had a pig
She ate the pig and sheared the lamb
Now the fathead wears a wig!

Mary had a little lamb
She called it Juliet
She tried to make it diet
But Julie et and et and et.

Mary had a little lamb
She used it as a scanner
With doccies passed in through its mouth
And pulled out with a spanner.

Mary had a little lamb
...strayed from its grassy sector
Alas poor thing it landed up
In the mouth of one called Lechter.

Now here's a very, very clever Mary tale, author unknown:

Mary had a little plane
And through the air she'd frisk
Wasn't she a silly girl
Her little *

ass to risk! ....that's what I said: -)

Mary had a little lamb
It strayed into her garden
Then when it made a little poop
It baa'd 'I beg your pardon, '

Mary had a little lamb
Barbequed a lamb
To fill her tummy's yearning
The meat got charred, and it cried out:
'This lady IS for turning! '

Mary bought a little lamb
Far away in Guernsey
But Customs wouldn't let him through
Until he was a Jersey.

Mary had a little lamb
It worked fo ra mortician
Then found the job too boring
So became a politician.

Mary had a little lamb
And a little singing mouse
What fun they had together
Serenading Johan Strauss.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
