Don’t come around here no more

Once I had a dolly
but I lost him on the moor
now dolly don’t come around here no more

Once we had a puppy
but he went down the shore
and puppy don’t come around here no more

Once we had a granny
but she felt terrible poor
now granny don’t come around here no more

Once we had a daddy
mummy threw him out the door
said daddy don’t come around here no more

Once we had a mummy
but we found her on the floor
now mummy don’t come around here no more

  1. I haven’t read a poem like this in a while. Something we ALL can relate to. I like the voice it carries.

Go ahead -- say something. Anything.
