1,116 (who?)
Georgie Porgie threw an orgy
     just outside L.A.,
where Jack Be Nimble grabbed his thimble,
     outing him as gay...

Little Jack Horner bought Time Warner
     before the bubble burst,
though Jumping Jack Flash saw the crash
     and liquidated first...

Jack said Jill was taking the Pill
     to ward off impregnation;
the Three Blind Mice have lobbied twice
     for victim's compensation...

Little Miss Muffet had her tuffet
     liposuctioned out,
and Little Bo Peep married a creep;
     lamb chops gave him gout...

Jack Sprat's wife went under the knife
     for Lap-Band surgery,
then Third Little Pig struck it big
     on reality TV...

Old King Cole's gone on the dole,
     exposed as a pretender;
while Wee Willie Winkie flashed his pinkie,
     that Registered Offender...

Mother Goose declares a truce
     on being rearranged;
nursery rhymes reflect the times,
     but times, they've sure a-changed!
:paranoid: Man, I scare myself sometimes.

(Title = pun, of course.)

Daily Deviation

Given 2009-03-23
Of all of the humorous poems I have read on DA, for me personally this one has to top them all. Massacre of the Innocence by =BornBlitzed has a witty satire that is just perfectly twisted! ( Suggested by BloodshotInk and Featured by LadyLincoln )

Now, it seems like this is some sort of anecdote,
but I really don't think it is.
Great poem. I suppose all of our souls can be in a happy place.
