We live in modern times

Mary had a little lamb
It was loved beyond recognition
unfortunately she fed it
only oxo cubes
so it died of malnutrition.

Or….

Mary had a little lamb
that she loved beyond recognition
so she kept it tied up
in her one bedroom flat
until it died of malnutrition.

Or….

Mary had a little lamb
it was loved beyond all doubt
but she only fed it red wine and paté
so it died of painful gout.

Or….

Mary had a little lamb
its fleece was white as snow
she nailed it to her left leg
so it went wherever she would go.

I wrote these for my kids a while ago and a recent blog brought them back to me. Thank you Sara.
