Writing Prompt: Nursery Rhyme

Writing prompt With a toddler and a newborn in the house, we're always re-inventing nursery rhymes, often to give our children a starring role in them (in our versions, it was Toby, not Yankee Doodle who went to town, and who sat on a wall).

Take a familiar nursery rhyme and rewrite it - either to give it a new protagonist (or antagonist) or to change the outcome of the story. Try to keep the rhyme and meter consistent.
