Humpty Dumpty

Humpty Dumpty he never fell
a government agency feared him –
a talking egg –
something that was but shouldn’t be – they tried to pay him to go away –
they had plans
diagrams
schematics
they threatened family members –

HD had psychic powers
could lift a bus
a train
whole families
with just a thought from inside his shiny
shell brain

If the Russians got hold of him…
(the thought was unthinkable)
(but they thought it anyway)

he had to go
and they just waited for him
to sit on a high wall on a day when all the kings horses
and all the kings men were off
away
