The Hey Diddle Diddle
Here is a Book of nonsensical rhymes.They worked like the Newspaper Cartoons. A feedback to the Ruling Class from the Common Folks.
Hey, diddle, diddle, The Cat and the Fiddle,
The Cow jumped over the Moon,
The little Dog laughed, to see such Sport,
and the Dish ran away with the Spoon.
Nonsensical Rhymes and Stories were used as Political Satire in England in the old days. Some were “Humpty Dumpty Sat on a Wall” and the famous “Alice in Wonderland”.
