    Ring around a rosey= when rats bite you they leave a ring around their bite. Their bite leaves a disease know as the bubonic plague.
    Pocket full of posey= when got the disease body decomposes and leaves behind a stench. Posey is a flower used to block the stench.
    Ashes= to cure the disease europians built a bonfire and marched in a circle chanting.
    We all fall sown= after that they would fall down and leaers would whip them.
