NEW: “A Boy’s Thanksgiving Day”

NEW at RG: “A Boy’s Thanksgiving Day,” a.k.a. “Over the River and Through the Wood,” a.k.a. “That Song They Made You Sing in Elementary School Every November,” by Lydia Maria Child.

Child was a nineteenth-century American poet, abolitionist, and women’s rights activist who, it’s pretty safe to say, never thought she’d be featured on Rap Genius.
