“Ring O’ Ring O’ Rosies
a pocket full of tosies”
This is the famous Wicks spell against athletes foot, AF. During AF epidemics the chant was believed to misguide AF germs by making them believe Wicks’ keep their toes in their pockets. Once the first rumblings of athletes foot are felt in said pockets the Wicks will hurl himself off of the nearest cliff into a roiling sea. As we all know AF germs hate the sea and are thus drowned.
