IBMC #08: The Nursery Rhyme Challenge

You will pick a nursery rhyme and make a new interpretation of it. You are free to make edits to that rhyme and then give an interpretation. The only ultimate restriction is that there has to be rhyme and a new context to it. Let your imaginations flow.

Original rhyme:

Jack and Jill

Jack and Jill

Went up the hill

To fetch a pail of water,

Jack fell down

And broke his crown

And Jill came tumbling after.

Up Jack got

And home did trot

As fast as he could caper,

Went to bed

To mend his head

With vinegar and brown paper.


My new rhyme:

Hilary and Trump

Hilary and Trump

Went on a romp

Over the checkered field.

When out came a rabbit

And Trump said, “Let me get at it!”

As Hilary jumped and squealed.

“Let it be”, cried Hilary

As Trump jumped forth with glee.

But, Trump caught it up

And with a big whump

He gave the rabbit a bump

And both took it home to sup.
