IBMC #8 – The Nursery Rhyme Challenge

Today’s task for the challenge is:

You are going to enjoy this. You will pick a nursery rhyme and make a new interpretation of it. You are free to make edits to that rhyme and then give an interpretation. The only ultimate restriction is that there has to be rhyme and a new context to it. Let your imaginations flow.

For more details on the challenge click here.


The original rhyme I chose:

Chubby cheeks, dimple chin

Rosy lips, teeth within

Curly hair, very fair

Eyes so blue, lovely too

Teacher’s pet, is that you?


My version:

Facebook posts, Whats app messages,

Selfie pouts, tweet within,

Instagram pictures, you-tube videos

Eyes so glued, hands too,

People’s pet, is that you?

    That is an absolutely new take to poems, Radhika! You seemed to have crossed over to a different level altogether. Loved your hilarious version of Chubby Cheeks! Another feather on your cap, my dear poet!

    I happened to read this only now! Loved it. Things of concern, written hilariously. Love the “tweet within” part.
