A tattooed mouse

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

Use that form as inspiration. What about a purple ghost? Or a tattooed mouse? A spotted dick? (Which is a pudding in England.) A dark black charm? A faceless clown?

Change as much of the content as you want. Can you make it work with a one syllable adjective and two syllable noun? Do you need to keep the dah-dah-DAH rhythm pattern or would a crabby werewolf work? Try tapping it out. Or jumping rope to it. :-)
