Tio små negerpojkar

Ten little nigger boys went out to dine;
One choked his little self and then there were Nine.
Nine little nigger boys sat up very late;
One overslept himself and then there were Eight.
Eight little nigger boys travelling in Devon;
One said he'd stay there and then there were Seven.
Seven little nigger boys chopping up sticks;
One chopped himself in halves and then there were Six.
Six little nigger boys playing with a hive;
A bumble bee stung one and then there were Five.
Five little nigger boys going in for law;
One got into Chancery and then there were Four.
Four little nigger boys going out to sea;
A red herring swallowed one and then there were Three.
Three little nigger boys walking in the Zoo;
A big bear hugged one and then there were Two.
Two little nigger boys sitting in the sun;
One got frizzled up and then there was One.
One little nigger boy left all alone;
He went out and hanged himself and then there were None.

















Det är fredagseftermiddag, en av de där härliga med kinamat och popcorn och überbra film. Jag har just börjat läsa Agatha Christie's "Tio små negerpojkar", som cirkulerar lite kring den ovanstående ramsan. Den handlar om tio personer som åker till "Negerön" där de sedan försvinner undan för undan i likhet med ramsan. Boken har tydligen bytt namn flera gånger i England, först från Ten little niggers, till Ten little indians, till slutligen And then there where none. Detta på grund av rasism och så vidare. 
Kanske kommer jag en dag att diskutera rasism, men inte idag. 
Ha en trevlig fredagskväll. Ät popcorn. Tappa nålar. I en höstack.
