hickory dickory mockery




hickory dickory mockhickory dickory mockery

by punkie


chocolate boxes
sly as foxes
watch from on the shelf

evil plotted
clearly spotted
blamed upon myself

make a circle
turn it turtle
heaven goes to hell

pick your partner
choose a charmer
the farmer in the dell

like jack horner
in the corner
someone rang the bell

what goes around
then comes around
count on time to tell
