Persnickety Witch

Oh persnickety wickedly witch

Who tried to stave off dandruff itch

Used a cat to cushion her head

And fell with a grunt out of her bed

 

Oh persnickety wickedly witch

Of flake and flurry scalp twitch

Sought bats to beat the snow away

But wings clapped her hair to grey

 

Oh persnickety wickedly witch

Heard the cure from a snitchy-snitch

On her crown she let perch an owl

That pecked her head and made her howl!

 

Oh persnickety wickedly witch

Who tried to stave off dandruff itch

Inhaled the dust with every breath

And promptly sneezed herself to death.
