Yesterday was a strange day for me, whilst driving LPV around I…ahem…we listened to nursery rhymes. It actually dawned on me whilst listening to words they are the most violent & terrifying things ever…. few examples for you……………..
Goosey Goosey Gander where shall I wander,
Upstairs, downstairs and in my lady’s chamber
There I met an old man who wouldn’t say his prayers,
I took him by the left leg and threw him down the stairs
Now I don’t know about you but I feel it’s a weeshy bit violent towards the elderly gentleman, religion is a personal choice!!!
There was an old lady who swallowed a fly, perhaps she’ll die!!!
Flippin eck this terrified me at infants school, no wonder I have a phobia of creepy crawly things
Sing a song of six pence
The poor maid she’s minding her own business hanging out the washing and along comes a black bird and pecks her nose off, I would demand a raise!!
It’s not just the rhymes thou fairy tales were quite scary and really not child approprite too, poor Red Ridding hood had her granny eaten by the wolf, then she had to stand by while the woodsman chopped him open with an axe!! Hello therapist!!!!!
