The Crooked Man

My friend asked me for a bedtime story, and since I was playing the game 'The Crooked Man' I decided to extend the Mother Goose rhyme.

'There was a crooked man, who walked a crooked mile,
He found a crooked sixpence, upon a crooked stile.
He bought a crooked cat, who caught a crooked mouse,
And they all lived together, in a little crooked house.'

That's the original poem.
The picture I didn't draw at all.

Meaning you can't use this full poem without my expressed permission.

EDIT: Now with watermark :D

EDIT edit: I'm no longer going to people's pages to thank them for faving, It's not that I don't appreciate it, but I get at least a few faves a day and if I skip checking for day it's quite a lot, so here I'll say 'Thanks for faving!'

Is there any way for me to be allowed to use this version? I hadn't realized you didn't want others to use it without permission. I didn't upload anything I won't be taking down instantly, but I was just working on something that has this version.

What did you want to use it for?
TheArowsChronicles's avatar
I was making a semi serious video that had the poem in it. Not even sure I'd ever upload it though. There's a small room, in Minecraft, with thunder and lightning while the poem appears on the top of the screen.

Sure, just make sure you don't take credit, post a link somewhere to the original and send me a link if you do ever end up on using it.

'There was a crooked man, who walked a crooked mile,
He had a set of crooked teeth, to match his crooked smile...
Nyroc-The-Wolfeh's avatar
Hmm... It would flow better to be 'he had some crooked teeth' instead of a set, there are too many syllables, but I like it.

I liked the crooked man game a lot but the whole thing feels a bit too real for me, I share David's name, his failures to reach his goal, his lost love and his faltering family. and the more I think about all these things it scares me as to whether it will end up like Duke in the game and very nearly David, I've been very close to in the past but too cowardly to complete the act. in the end I suppose depression's a war: you either win or die trying.

anyway good job on the poem and apologies for my depressing words above.

Thank you for the compliment, and I hope you're feeling better soon! We may not know each other but if you need someone to talk to you can feel free to note me

Very interesting and nicely written poem extension! It certainly fits with the game's dark theme. Was the part immediately following the original based on "Fluffy's" singing verse near the end of the game? Also, what does "myth-ed" mean? When I tried looking it up, one of the results I got was "baffled". 
Nyroc-The-Wolfeh's avatar
It wasn't my intention to make it fluffy's version right after, I wrote this a few months after playing so it was unintentional if it's the same; and myth-ed is a made up word, I used it in the sense that it means something spoken if in myths or old stories/legends, tales... that sort of thing :3
