Humpty Dumpty

Updated on June 25, 2017

I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.

Humpty Dumpty
Humpty Dumpty

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall reading his book

Here comes the police with siren, they thought he was a crook

Humpty's friends all jumped off the wall and ran away

Humpty fell and was never the same to this very same day

Humpty Dumpty was on his way to school

Humpty did not know the golden rules

The Principal shouted no running in the hall

Humpty never heard, slipped and had a great fall

Humpty Dumpty was tired and went to England to visit the queen

It was the most royal place he had seen

Humpty decided to ride a horse and was flung to the floor around a bend

But all the queens horses and all the queen's men, couldn't put humpty together again.

I bet at the end of this poem you will forget how the real Humpty Dumpty nursery rhyme goes

As for Humpty Dumpty, he is nothing now but a shell and a nose.

      There's a bit of political and cultural realism in these fun poems, Clive. I loved them.

      Hey Jodah, Humpty Dumpty surely gets around.

      Humpty Dumpty went to the ball,

      He couldn't dance 'cause his legs were too small.

      All he could do was sit in the corner,

      Cracking jokes with Little Jack Horner.

      These brought a smile, Clive. Thanks.
