Old Mother Hubbard
Amazing how the entire meaning is changed
by changing a couple of words.

The classic nursery rime, Old Mother Hubbard, teaches that sometimes life is less than grand. The rhyme as I learned it is a less violent
and gruesome version of the original that had slipped into obscurity. In recasting the events of Ms. Hubbard and her hound, only a couple of words needed to changed in order to make the rhyme acceptable to children.


The Children's version of the classic nursery rhyme as I learned it:

Old mother hubbard,
Went to the cupboard,
To give her poor dog a bone;

When she came there,
The cupboard was bare,
And so the poor dog had none.



The original version of the nursery
rhyme:

Old sister hubbard,
Went to the cupboard,
To give her poor dog a bone;

When she came there,
The cupboard was bare,
And so the poor dog had nun.
