Little Miss

Little Miss Muffet sat on a tuffet
Eating a Big Mac and fries
Along came a spider and sat down beside her
'Yuck', it said, 'I prefer flies'.

Miss Muffet & the Big Mac

'Little Miss' is a parody of the English nursery rhyme Little Miss Muffet. You'll recognise that the poem is based on the original nursery rhyme, but some things have changed - a MacDonald's instead of curds and whey and a spider that, rather strangely, can speak.

Other nursery rhyme parodies in the collection suitable for pre-school and KS1 children include Humpty, a parody of Humpty Dumpty and Muddleheaded Mary, in which Mary didn't have a little lamb, although vegetarian children may object.
