#05. An Introduction

Rhymes are simple melodious songs and nursery rhymes are what children listen to and learn from their mothers, at a very tender age.

Many of the words and lyrics found in the popular nursery rhymes have been used as a parody of the royal events and political happenings of that time.

A direct comment or reference to those events would end up in arousing the wrath of the authorities and getting beheaded in public!

So the names and identities have been hidden and those bitter truths have been saved and spread in the form of nursery rhymes-appearing really harmless and sounding sweetly innocent!
