"Lizzie Bordon took an axe
And gave her mother fourty whacks
When she saw what she had done
She gave her father fourty one"
WHY IS THIS EVEN A THING?
Who decided children should SING this? O.O
What was the point?? O.o
Which, btw, is proof that media coverage of horrible violence does not beget violence. Kids don't skip around swinging jumpropes and axes. Often. ...I hope.
See, it is these kinds of things? Why I'm not a Mom! ;)
I should add she was never convicted of the crime!
The crime was as gruesome as you'd imagine. Ok, No. You should not accurately imagine such a thing.
So LJers, that's a story from my area. What's around where you are?
