The house that jack built

I did this one backwards,

starting with the cock.

Not much to say here – it’s a classic.

this is the cock

that crowed in the morn.

that woke . . .

the parson

all shaven and shorn,

who married

the man

all tattered and torn,

who kissed the maiden all forlorn,

who milked

the cow with the crumpled horn

that tossed the dog

that worried

the cat

that killed the rat

that ate

the malt

that lay in the house that Jack built.
