Shot In The Head, Head, Head!

Illustration:  The Little Man And His Gun.  NURSERY COLORED PICTURE BOOK.  McLOUGHLIN BROS.: NEW YORK. Ca 1870.

“The Little Man and His Gun.”

There was a little man, and he had a little gun,

And his bullets were made of lead, lead, lead;

He went unto the brook, and he shot a little duck,

And hit her right through the head, head, head.

Then he went home unto his little wife Joan,

And bade her a good fire make, make, make,

To roast the little duck he had shot at the brook,

Whilst he went and shot the drake, drake, drake.

    1. The confusion about why and what with these stories and rhymes interests me too. These bits of literature and the images molded minds – the minds who came before us. And they in turn molded us!
