FOR EASTER Humpty Dumpty – From the Chapbook, A Neighborhood Child. Repost Humpty Dumpty You’re a mess! Fat egg The moment of your crash a fright! I’ll never forget The lightning flash of yellow and white Did you fall face ward or back? - I can’t tell With yoke plashed over your shell With all the king’s men The ovaries of a hen It’s still quite ridiculous A job so meticulous

Poor Hunptey, Daver, he must have been looking back to see what the neigbours were doing, lost his balance, then got 'plashed'?:( Too bad he didn't have a neck? This is fun and cute!:) Keep, Mikki
