The art of the nursery rhyme is not yet lost, it seems. In addition to the contemporary kiddie-poem competition I talked about the other day, some of Britain's big-time poets have penned a few barbed ditties themselves. Read about it here. How about this little jump-rope rhyme by Carol Ann Duffy:
George W Bush, Tony Blair, looked for weapons. None were there. War on terror. Torn-up weather. George W Bush, Tony Blair.
Go ahead. Try it yourself. And do share with all of us.
