Lizzie Borden took an axe,
And gave her mother forty whacks,
When she saw what she had done,
She gave her father forty-one.
That is the children’s rhyme that was created after the trial of Lizzie Borden in 1893. She was accused of murdering her parents by whacking them with an axe. Although the picture is in black and white, she is a redhead. A very crazy one at that.
