NOT SO INNOCENT JACK AND JILL

Young Jack and Jill went up the hill To fetch a pail of water Jack put his arms around her waist And they did something they shouldn’t ought’a Soon she was spreading around her girth Nine months later she gave birth … Doing something they shouldn’t ought’a Gave them a baby daughter! 4th December 2015

I've always was puzzled by this little poem. Well, you've cracked it open for me! Delightful, Jan. Thanks for reading Hi ho, Hi ho. The holiday season is the only one that most christians blind themselves to the greed and tacky commercialism of xmas. / M

LOL Maurice i just did my own take on the rhyme .. but maybe this was the real reason they went up the hill lol - I don't bow to commercialism - sadly the real reason for celebrating Christmas is lost in the wrapping paper and boxes!:-( hugs jan

I see that now... I was a little ahead of myself and should have been more understanding. K.

Its humourous but tinged with sadness Keith. I'd forgotten all about this poem then I found this in a notebook I write my poems in when I'm at work -I wrote the girls and boys one yesterday so thought I would post them on the same day :-) Hugs Jan xx
