May 3, 2015: Del Rio News-Herald * OPINION * Letters to the Editor * Nursery rhymes past and present







































Letter to the Editor,

Nursery Rhymes Past and Present

THEN: Old MacDonald had a farm, E-I-E-I-O
And on that farm he had a cow, E-I-E-I-O
With a moo moo here and a moo moo there
Here a moo, there a moo, everywhere a moo moo
Old MacDonald had a farm, E-I-E-I-O

NOW: @olddonaldo* had a smartphone, AAMOI (As a matter of interest)
And on that smartphone he did tweet, AAMOI
With a tweet tweet here and a tweet tweet there
Here a tweet, there a tweet, everywhere a tweet tweet
@olddonaldo had a smartphone, AAMOI
*Not a real person’s Twitter account

THEN: A-tisket a-tasket
A green and yellow basket
I wrote a letter to my love
And on the way I dropped it,
I dropped it,
I dropped it,
And on the way I dropped it.
A little boy he picked it up and put it in his pocket

NOW: I text and I text,
All day long all I do is text,
I typed a message to my love
And on its way, they hacked it,
They hacked it,
They hacked it
And on its way, they hacked it.
A hacker cracked the code and going viral there it went

THEN: Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are!
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.



NOW: Twitter, twitter, little hastag,
How I wonder why you lag!
With the world wide web so great,
Net neutrality what will be its fate?

THEN: Mary had a little lamb,
His fleece was white as snow,
And everywhere that Mary went,
The lamb was sure to go.

Terry had a Mini Laptop,
Its cover was white as snow,
And everywhere that Terry went,
The Mini Laptop was sure to go.

THEN: Little Miss Muffet
Sat on a tuffet,
Eating her curds and whey;
Along came a spider,
Who sat down beside her
And frightened Miss Muffet away.

Lovely Princess Bella
Sat dressed in her gown made of taffeta,
Surfing the web all day;
Along came a troll,
Who went on a rampaging roll
And frightened Princess Bella away.

Safe Cyberspace Surfing!
