Eerie Nursery Rhymes

imaginarygarden Eerie Nursery Rhymes  Imagined By Magaly Guerrero


The wheels on the bus go round and round
and take you far from home
to a big old house on a lonely hill
with orphans under its dome.


Teddy bear, teddy bear, turn around
no one’s left to hug you tight
all the children have grown-up
and left you to your plight.
Nothing left to sew or stitch
your stuffing is nearly gone.
There’s nothing for it, don’t you see,
but the garbage dump at dawn.

  1. You said that you don’t get dark easily? Well, you could’ve fooled me and the teddy bear. Not to mention the child listening to this poem. I can see the shock in the little eyes, if s/he is old enough to understand.

    Just perfect for the prompt, methinks!

  2. Quite a spin we go on here, down to the dark place with teddy, who is always the Thing We Love, the little thing more helpless than we are, which we abandon without a thought as soon as bigger toys come along. Enjoyed this much.
