Poetry Month Mash-Up: Day Thirteen

Today, Rena challenged us to write a fractured nursery rhyme. She gave us a link to Kenn Nesbitt's lesson on how to do it and it was very helpful! It's very similar to the way I write song parodies. I'm actually working on a fractured fairy tale picture book incorporating characters and story lines from several nursery rhymes so this was right up my alley.

          Humpty Dumpty scaled the King's wall.
                  Humpty Dumpty crashed the King's ball.
                  No one would dance with him - why do you think?
                  His shell had a crack in it - boy, did he stink!
