The retired blind man has had enough of being taunted and teased and nobody can blame him for lacking a sense of humour. This rhyme sets the stage for the little darlings to tease and mock people with disabilities.

 

BLIND MAN

Blind Man, blind man,

Sure you can't see?

Turn around three times,

And try to catch me.

 

Turn east, turn west,

Catch as you can,

Did you think you'd caught me?

Blind man, blind man!
