If Jack And Jill Went Up A Hill Today

If Jack and Jill
Went up a hill
What would people say?

Is the hill
A metaphor
For the stair
Jack and Jill …
Or nothing more
Than a plain, old hill?

Did Jill
Push Jack
Down that Hill?
And did he,
Fighting back
Bring that she
(Known as Jill)
Their hands fumbling,
Down that Hill?

Should the Old Bill
Perhaps a date
Went wrong? But no, tis a crime
To spoil a children’s nursery rhyme!
