Paper (The Rules by Ellen Fein and Sherrie Schneider, 1995), acrylic paint, and rubber cement on 11″ x 15″ canvas. Charring performed using a hand torch.

From Wikipedia, “Playground songs are distinct from nursery rhymes in that they are sung by groups of children together in spontaneous play, rather than by parents or teachers to children. The extreme awkwardness of relations between young boys and girls is a common motif, such as in the American song “K-I-S-S-I-N-G.” “
