A cold women

There once was a women of ice.

she never knew how to be nice.

she spent all of her life,

on the edge of a knife,

cutting herself off from advice.


Once I had a rat

then I got a cat

the cat ate the rat

then i got a bat

and beat the cat

then I put him in a sack.


There once was twins.

they always wanted to win,

they fought over toys,

when they were boys,

and know there still fighting as men.
