Summary
Knell analyzes the traditional, subversive, and creative aspects of playground rhymes. He believes that children's folklore differs from the role played in other forms of folklore because it is not conservative. Knell suggests that playground rhymes defy moral boundaries and expectations by indulging in such taboo topics as violence, sexuality, and drugs. He believes that children sing these rhymes unselfconsciously as a way to rebel and find a socially appropriate expression for socially inappropriate behaviors
