    The market will be bumpy
    Rest of ’22
    I have no investments
    And not going to

    My money’s safe in a piggy bank under the bed Fan………..

    The world is a market place. There is always buying and selling.

    “This little piggy went to market, this little piggy stayed home, this little piggy had roast beef, this little piggy had none and this little piggy …cried wee wee wee all the way home.” As a small child I remember my mother doing this to my toes and the resulting squeals of laughter….

      I remember that, too?

      I did that (with the toes) with a child I babysat. His mother was a bit surprised.

      Here is the latter 2/3 of a different rhyme — that I didn’t repeat any of (first, second, or third):

      To market, to market, to buy a plum cake;
      Home again, home again, market is late.
      To market, to market, to buy a plum bun;
      Home again, home again, market is done.

      To market, to market, a gallop a trot,
      To buy some meat to put in the pot;
      Three pence a quarter, a groat a side,
      If it hadn’t been killed it must have died.

      “To market, to market” is an old nursery rhyme with origins in English tradition, dating back to the 15th century.

      Although its origins could date three centuries before, the rhyme was only published in its compact form in 1805 in the “Songs for the Nursery” collection.

        I was raised with all these old nursery rhymes…sadly they are a thing of the past…and I think a loss to Chidren’s literature…. Enjoyed your poem.
