“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.
