The Crooked Man by Nyroc-The-Wolfeh The Crooked Man by Nyroc-The-Wolfeh
Simple Copyright Banner by Drache-Lehre

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.

Poem (extension) (c) me.
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.

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.

'There was a crooked man, who walked a crooked mile,
He had a set of crooked teeth, to match his crooked smile...

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.

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".

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

Iiiiiiiits about a boy coming to a fantasy world, and coming across a lot more dark and twisted stuff than you'd expect?

What, do you need to look it up on wikipedia or the main tvropes page?  I linked to the Nightmare Fuel subpage because it described what that Crooked Man did.

I'll be writing a review on the book soon, would you like to read that?

Um, i have the complete version.. but don't blame me if it's not..um..real. i juat copy it from a mother goose site.

He met a crooked woman and they found a crooked preach

They had a little marriage on a crooked little beach

They had some crooked children and they lived a crooked live

 

The crooked man, the cat, the mouse, the woman and the children were happy for a number of crookedly long years

Lived a life of crooked happinnes, no worries and no fears

Until one day, the crooked woman upset the crooked man

He yelled a crooked yell and then he hit her and he ran

 

The crooked man came again at the stroke of twelve

That was when their crooked life became a living hell

There was a crooked man and he walked a crooked mile

And when he killed his wife and children, he smiled a crooked smile : )
