This poem was originally written for the BASIC Anthology – “Writers Cramp”
It’s been redrafted, so I’m sharing it with you here.
Humpty Dumpty was sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
When he fell, he cracked and looked a bit Mushed
Sources say – he may have been pushed!
Reports from the scene, say the Mad March Hare
pushed over poor Humpty as part of a dare!
But the Hatter says th’ Hare is innocent of th’crime
as they were having tea with Alice at th’time.
The Kings horses and men are all stood on guard,
By the scene of the crime, in the castle yard
Inspector Horner, or jack to his face
(the great nursery detective ace)
has been assigned to look after the case!
with his partner Jill,
and Brown bears three
Horner says th’case
will be solved by Tea!
So they’re starting today
and off in a rush
to see who gave Humpty
that horrible push!
Who committed this crime,
is anyone’s guess
but Horner and his team
will sort out the mess.
