Does anyone remember why Humpty Dumpty fell off of the wall?
I remember the poem, but it doesn't say why. It is a poem about King George who toppled from his rule during the era the poem was written.
Nope, as teaches12345 says, the poem does not say why Humpty fell. As I child, I guess I thought it was because he was an egg and couldn't balance on that wall. You know how an egg has to lean up against something on your counter or be placed into something or it will roll away? Same for Humpty.
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall.
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.

Really were glad they still had the hen.
I have no clue! This story was not part of my upbringing being from Belgium.
