"three blind mice."

"three blind mice."

Three blind mice!, three blind mice!
See how they run!, see how they run!
They all ran after the farmers wife.
She cut off their tails with a carving knife.
Did you ever see such a thing in your life?!
As three blind mice!

(Bureaucratic re-interpretation of same)

Three optically challenged members of the species mus musculus (little
re-emphasized as to their number,
are recommended, by a party or parties unknown, as being suitable
candidates for close observation, based on their ability to produce high
speed, non-mechanically assisted locomotion, mainly of a forwardly
propelling nature.

Like the number of this species involved, this ability is, likewise,
re-emphasized! For reasons, never verbalized by the narrator(?)
These rodents, travelling, no doubt, at a high rate of speed,
decide, in unison, to direct their locomotive pursuits, in the direction
of a farmers wife!

It appears that, this indefatigable, resolute women, summarily, with
what is described as a large carving knife. Deftly removes the nether
appendages or tails of said creatures.
Whether in one fell swoop of the blade,
or with a series of elegant strokes,
is. mercifully, left to the imagination of the reader!

Suffice it to say, that one is assured, by inference, that such a sight,
approaches the unique.
For reasons, once again, unknown or obscure. The unique happening
referred to,
Is the optical deficiency of the mice involved. (Not the singular
occurrence, albeit, made up of, what "talking heads", these days,
wrongly refer to as a "threepeat!") Being the event that one would,
reasonably, have expected to constitute the main point and focus of interest!

Sounds familiar. I've seen several "beaurocratic" rewrites of nursery rhymes and fairy tales.

An' it harm none, do what ye will. Blessed Be.
