Here is an old English nursery rhyme.... Good for jumping rope.... has a catchy rhythm.
Eeper Weeper chimney sweeper
Had a wife but couldn't keep her
Had another, didn't love her
Up the chimney he did shove her
That is a story about a guy who killed his 2nd wife and stuffed her up a chimney. Kids used to recite that and skip and jump to it. Kids didn't give it two thoughts..... just loved the rhyme and rhythm. And they didn't grow up to be Jack the Rippers...... Only Jack grew up to be Jack the Ripper. I am certainly NOT advocating teaching kids gory stories but if you examine old nursery stories they were mostly political and a little bit gory. What is next? Ban nursery rhymes?
