Baker Tony's Pizza

Baker Tony baked a pizza
very round and thin
He said he added olives
but he never put them in
The stuff that he had grated
and sprinkled on to please
was only yellow sawdust
although he called it cheese
The rich tomato topping
was nothing more than dye
so Baker Tony's pizza
made all the children cry

That's Ms Angela Martin's winning entry in the Time for a New Rhyme contest run by the children's digital television channel, Nick Jr.

And if you haven't caught the allusions yet, "Tony" is the British PM, and the rhyme is "an earnest ditty intended to educate youngsters on the government's decision to take Britain to war in Iraq."

There's no reaction yet from Mr Blair. Or from Little Miss Muffet.
