Little Miss Muffet

Little Miss Muffet
Sat on a Tuffet
Eating her curds and whey
There came a big spider
Who sat down beside her
And said “What a beautiful day”

Scary Mary, Quite Contrary

Scary Mary, quite contrary,
How do you clear your nose?
With bogey picks, and finger flicks
Snot nice, but that’s how it goes!

 I would never read the next one out loud, as I can't bring myself to say 'fart' - it's a word I was brought up to think of as swearing! (A poet who disapproves of her own poem: now that's rebellion at it's best!)

The Queen of Hearts
She made some farts
On a windy day.
The Knave of Hearts
He smelt the farts
Which blew him clean away.

Have a go at these fun poems yourself... start with a small change like changing what Miss Muffet says, then try some bigger ones when you get used to the rhythm. (Follow this link for a traditional nursery rhymes list and all of the lyrics to help you get started)
