Hickory Dickory

Hickory Dickory Dock
A fat mouse got stuck in the clock
Big Ben heard him squealing 
The alarm bells began pealing
That's when Tom cat stepped in to take stock.

Hickory Dickory Dock 
A mouse got stuck in the clock
Big Ben threw up his hands in despair
He could find no way the mouse to ensnare
Putting timeline in a deadlock...

Sadly, Tom could do nothing...

  1. Good morning yassy. What a novel idea! Your clever, two chapter nursery rhyme, structured in the limerick’s AABBA format, is absolutely amusing! I’ve gotta hand it to you, your β€œBig Ben threw up his hands in despair” line is wordplay at its finest, too!
