Children's fortune-telling rhyme used when counting cherry stones, buttons, daisy petals, also sometimes when skipping.

pinhole polaroids...
last of a no longer existing stock

Nursery rhymes are excellent, as are your polaroids! They have the same kind of creepyness and tell the story with so little. Very impressive!
