Please come ringing around the rosey
I have engaged in several in-depth discussions regarding what exactly the “rosey” is in this line. Given the overall coherence (or lack therof) in Problem’s writing, I can’t realistically believe that he himself knows. However, the general consensus is that– consciously or not– it’s totally about his dick.
That’s super creepy, since most modern americans now associate this nursery rhyme with the black plague, despite there being little evidence to support it.
