Stumble It!





 REDDIT ME:      



  Jack and Jill funny poem by Australian poet Graeme King - a Parolina poem that uses nursery rhymes and changes the story while keeping the original lines intact. ©kingpoetry2007.


I've invented the name...the form is to take an established poem and re-write it, but with the original lines in the correct position. 


Jack and Jill went up the hill

to try and save the planet

Rocky Horror stopped them in

their tracks like Brad and Janet.


Romeo sent Juliet

to fetch a pail of water

then he met the Capulets

resulting in a slaughter.


Jack the Ripper closed his zipper

things were hunky-dory

Jack fell down and broke his crown

but that's another story...


Jack gave Jill another pill

they both collapsed in laughter

then the clown fell dead to ground

and Jill came tumbling after.
