I’m a Little Troubler, Mean and Grim

Weekly Question

What childhood nursery rhyme would you like to write a story about but change the meaning completely?

If I had a chance to change a nursery rhyme from my childhood, I would change “I’m a little teapot” to “I’m a little troubler”. I’ve heard this nursery rhyme so many times as a kid and always pictured the little teapot to be super innocent and joyful. What if the teapot was not an innocent teapot, but rather he was a teapot who causes harm? This teapot would be a bully and would not get along with anybody. He would always get sad and angry over the smallest things. Instead of being gold with a smile, he would be dark blue with a frown on his face. Also, he is not good around young kids.
