Writing Prompt: Nursery Rhymes

Rewrite a nursery rhyme, using synonymous words and phrases.

For example:

The mini, minute arachnid
Traversed the downspout of a gutter at a heavenward approach
Earthward approached the precipitation
And threw the arachnid off course
Earth’s star rose and sped up evaporation
And the mini, minute arachnid
Returned to its aforementioned task.
