We’re all familiar with the nursery rhyme, Three Blind Mice, a disturbingly Gothic tale of disability, intimidation and cruel revenge.
The rhyme and its accompanying music is said to date back to 1603 and and is attributed to one Thomas Ravenscroft, whose imagination clearly was of a macabre nature.

 I discovered this charming picture online. It’s the work of Joanne West and you can see it and many more fascinating images at 


Three blind mice don’t think twice
they just run.

Three blind mice roll the dice
just for fun.

Three blind mice. Knife-slice thrice.
Now there’s none.
