No Hickory, No Dickory, No Dock

Wasn’t me
Wasn’t me
Said the little mouse
I didn’t run up no clock

You could hickory me
You could dickory me
Or lock me in a dock

I still say
I didn’t run up no clock

Was me who ran under your bed
Was me who bit into your bread
Was me who nibbled your cheese

But please, please,
I didn’t run up no clock
no hickory
no dickory
no dock.

I love this poem by John Agard. I thought I’d share it with you as the children are off and it’s one of our favorites.

  1. I have my 3 grandchildren (2,4 and 8) staying for a couple of nights. Could entertain them with nursery rhymes but I suspect that sadly they’ll be asking for the ipad!
