There Was a Crippled Man, by Elly Clifton

“There was a crooked man,”

BY MOTHER GOOSE

There was a crooked man,

Who walked a crooked mile,

He found a crooked sixpence against a crooked stile;

He bought a crooked cat, which caught a crooked mouse,

And they all lived together in a little crooked house.

 

now, the reworded version:

 

“there was a crippled man”

by Elly Clifton

 

There was a crippled man

Who had a crippled cat (Jaspurr has arthritis!)

That slept on crippled legs to warm his cripple’s lap

He bought a cripples chair and wrote a crippled tome

And they both lived together in a cripple friendly home.
