Fun Alternative Nursery Rhymes
By Josie Whitehead
This is a 'shadow poem', ie parody, of the children's nursery rhyme: Old King Cole - but Old King Cole was a merry old soul and quite the opposite of King Kan.
Old King Kan
Old King Kan was a miserable man
And a miserable man was he.
He caused his wife both trouble and strife
And screamed like a wild banshee.
A woman more kind you never would find,
As I think you would surely agree,
But she killed King Kan – ahhh – poor old man -
And then ran off with the fiddlers three three three
And ran off with the fiddlers, three.
