Remember how we’d flick the flower off the stem with our thumb and say, “Momma had a baby and its head popped off!”
That was more than just a little messed up, wasn’t it?
I mean seriously, Momma had a baby and its head popped off?! This was cause for serious concern and alarm, not an excuse for some morbid botanical re-enactment. Momma must have been having a very hard time grieving this tragedy, yet there we were, callously beheading dandelions like they were medieval gypsies.
Oh well. I guess this children’s rhyme is obsolete now that the Supreme Court has banned partial birth abortion.
