Truth by Mother Goose

Early years fill with nursery rhymes, stories designed to teach

Suspended between fictional characters dialog is made to preach

Current popular opinion, political outrage hidden between the lines

The villain and the hero match wits whilst the wicked witch opines

These morality plays change very little with the passage of time

Forces of good conquer evil and the story is set to rhyme

When you meet a character who comes straight from Mother Goose

You have discovered archetypal imagery that will help you to deduce

If you are the victim or the hero, the popular victor or the slimy creep

We all have parts to play, ego hiding under shadowy cover of sleep

Especially like the line

‘The villain and the hero match wits while the wicked witch opines’

lots of lovely alliteration! G:)

Perhaps ‘whilst’ instead of ‘while’ would work well. G:)

I’ve always find nursery rhymes and fairy tales quite dark.
