Jack and Jill

Jack and Jill
Took a little pink pill
That sent them up to the sky

Jack crashed flat
And never got back
But Jill continued to fly

Jack used booze
To help him cruise
But Jill’s still miles away

You can try your best
But she just can’t rest
And she’ll never be able to stay.

  1. this is wonderful 🙂 I’m totally laughing with glee – so much fun to take something and turn it on it’s ear 🙂 and yet, offer a serious commentary too – ahahaha, this brightens my morning 🙂


  2. This is a wonderful rift! Taking the well known, keeping the meter and “flying” with it in a more modern context.
    As scribblersdip suggests, it does off social commentary, which many of the original nursery rhymes were intended to do. Often thinly veiled political “pokes,” or cautionary tales, not necessarily aimed at children.
    Thanks for play the game: a great example of a modern rift on an ages-old rhyme.
