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

About Catastrophe Jones

Wretched word-goblin with enough interests that they're not particularly awesome at any of them. Terrible self-esteem and yet prone to hilarious bouts of hubris. Full of the worst flavors of self-awareness. Owns far too many craft supplies. Will sing to you at the slightest provocation.

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