Silly Nursery Rhyme Haiku, Part deux

peter had a wife
put her in a pumpkin shell
he should be in jail

over candlesticks
jack jumps nimbly and quickly
fire the damned nanny

rain, rain go away
come again another day
actually, don’t

jack sprat and his wife
always lick the platter clean
perhaps wash the dishes

woman in a shoe
had way too many children
what was she thinking?
