What about the Cow?

Today's prompt for Magaly's Dark Poetry for the Cruellest Month..

Write a poem based on one of the following stories
"Little Mermaid"
"Jack and the Beanstalk"
"Little Red Riding Hood"

"Where Are They Now?"

So today on "Where Are They Now?"
We seek the owner of a cow.
A much loved pet and family friend
That met a far from pleasant end.

What kind of monster gave away
That gentle soul who lived to play?
And for what...a Magic Bean!
Do I alone find this obscene?

Well here he is folks...Happy Jack!
*nice leather coat and a gold filled sack*
Time for a chat Sir?...Folks want to know...
What did Daisy do to be treated so?

Was it the smell...was her breath so bad?
Was she just too uncool for Jack the Lad?
Is that why you had to cut her loose...
And replace her with that garish Goose?

Now don't pretend to be all shy.
We don't believe the tears you now cry.
Not so cocky...nothing to say?
Well get ready, 'cos here come the RSPCA!

Can you imagine the Jeremy Kyle show episodes in Pantoland????
Enjoy :D XXX


  1. Oh I love, love, love this! To my shame, I never before considered poor Daisy's plight.

  2. Oh, brilliant! I couldn't help but laugh at "Not so cocky..." :D

  3. I'm glad I'm not the only one who hasn't much patience for Jack the thief. Seriously, that youth committed more crimes than most mafia members. I hope the cow bites his rear.

  4. I seriously hope Jack does community service on a farm where the animals get even.

  5. I seriously hope Jack does community service on a farm where the animals get even.

  6. Love the reporter feel of this! :)

  7. LOL - that will teach that Jack!

  8. Brilliant writing, karma will return for Jack, ha :)

  9. Oh, this is just fabulous! I hope Jack gets what he deserves!

  10. Witty one, honestly i felt bad when he stole that goose and scooted

    much love..

  11. How cool is it?! Such a wonderful painting.

  12. Searching for Mavis - has she too been rewritten into something else?
