Horrific Nursery Rhymes: Happy Mother’s Day…

**Dedicated in loving memory to my Mom, Shirley Mae Snyder. Mom loved Horror Films, and probably would have seen a film like this with me if she was still here today. Thanks for the memories Mom. Still ❤️ You**

Mary was on the lam
she committed a heinous crime
everywhere she went
paranoia was close behind

Mary hated her Mother
she thought she was a bitch
she considered a quiet smother
instead bashed her head in with a stick

Mary had no regrets
She did it with great glee
But now the police are after her
So, Mary must now flee

Mary found a shack
down in Saugerties
she hid there for a week
without food or water
she was feeling rather weak

Harry was hungry
and homeless all the same
till Harry came upon this shack
his hunger went away
see Harry wasn't right
normal food didn't satiate
Harry was a cannibal
and Mary was his steak

Harry thought of Mom
on this here Mother's Day
how Mom had turned him to
the man he is today
that day she blew her face off
and left Harry a loving note

Dear Harry
my love 
you won't starve
just gnaw on my headless corpse
one day you'll grow big
and always think of me
me, your loving Mother
signed lovingly

    1. Especially with my Mom no longer here. Honestly, if she were alive today…this poem would have been gushing with sentimentality. My Mom was my best friend. But, weirdly writing this brought a smile to me, because it reminded of all those movie going times we shared,

  1. I can honestly say Matt, I wouldn’t expect to find this poem on a Hallmark card…ever. It is clever and you knew your mom so I say it’s a memorable tribute to her on this day!

    1. No, I could never see this ether on a card lol, unless the author then quit Hallmark. But yeah unlike my Dad, my Mom loved horror Films, books, The Halloween holiday, dark rides and haunted houses. Heck, when I was in second grade she helped me design my Halloween costume as a head on a plate, I wore this outfit of a box set for dinner with my head through a hole on a plate and paraded the neighborhood in the 70’s. I don’t think that would fly today. 😁
