Ladybird, ladybird, fly away home!
Your house is on fire, your children all gone,
All but one, and her name is Ann,
And she crept under the pudding pan.
This poem, also known as “Ladybug, Ladybug,” was originally a taunt used by Puritans in the 16th and 17th Centuries against people they believed to be closet Catholics (i.e., people who weren’t attending a proper Anglican church, like everyone else).
