Nursery Rhymes in Free Verse

Franklin P. Adams, Weights and Measures:
John Spratt detested carbohydrates.
The deglutition of proteins, to his wife,
Was intolerable.
Wherefore, coöperating,
There was no waste of provender.

Twinkle, starlet,
Loftily, supramundanely, diamondly.

Little Miss Muffet sat in a corner,
Absorbing casein --
A food of great nutritive power,
Rich in butter fats.
A spider -- an arachnid of the species
Araneidae -- came along;
Ugly, motive, horrendous,
Terrorizing her to the point of departure.
