Black by Reymicx
I am positive that most are already familiar with the origins but here is a brief run down. The period in which the black plague (aka the bubonic plague) came around in the 14th century and people were dying left and right, plague doctors were clocking in and getting to work. This was where the origins of the rhyme ring around the rosie came from!
Ring around the rosie
Pocket full of posie (plague masks have a long beak where nosegays ((a flower bouquet)) were stored to prevent doctors from getting sick themselves)
Ashes, Ashes (if a patient was believed to have been incurable, they would be set to flame)
We all fall down (because they died...)
