Just a Couple of Fairly Gruesome Nursery Rhymes.

For some reason this nursery rhyme popped into my head this evening, and it occurred to me that I had never heard anyone outside of my family saying it, I don't think.  Its gruesome heartlessness is brilliant:

Willie in his nice new sashes,
Fell in the fire and burned to ashes,
Though the room grew dark and chilly,
Nobody cared to poke poor Willie.

Here's another:

"What is that mess upon the street that looks like strawberry jam?"
"Hush hush, Mama, it is Papa run over by a tram."

Hope you enjoyed :)
