Silly Nursery Rhyme Haiku – Part 1

hey diddle diddle
how does a cat play fiddle
without real fingers?

needing some water
jack and jill went up the hill
boy was he a klutz

little jack horner
stuck his thumb in his plum pie
where were his parents?

the wheels on the bus
go round and round, round and round
what else would they do?

meeny miny moe
catch a tiger by the toe
expect to be mauled
