The following rhymes are from Inaqua, Bahama Island. They're recited over the hole of a doodlebug to try to get it to come out.

A doodlebug is, "Some kind of larva that lives in a hole in the ground, about the size of a knitting-needle, is angled for by dropping a juicy grass-stalk into the hole." -Poems Here at Home




If anyone from The Bahamas is familiar with these rhymes, please email me to let us know. Thanks in advance! –Mama Lisa
