New Versions of Old Rhymes...

Three Blind Mice
Three blind mice, three blind mice.
See how they run, see how they run!

They all ran after the farmer’s wife,
Who cut off their tails with a carving knife.
Have you ever seen such a sight in your life?
As three blind mice!


Three Sightless Rodents,
the alternate intellectual’s version:

Three sightless rodents, three sightless rodents.
Observe how they ambulate, observe how they ambulate!
They all pursued the agriculturalist’s spouse,
Who severed their posterior extensions with a carving utensil.
Have you ever observed such a spectacle in your existence?
As three sightless rodents!

And..

Row, Row, Row Your Boat.
Row, row, row your boat,
Gently down the stream
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily
Life is but a dream.

The "Other" version!

Propel, propel, propel your craft
Placidly down liquid solution
Ecstatically, ecstatically, ecstatically, ecstatically
Existence is merely an illusion.

~Bryant
