Occasionally, the stuff I write on the Allpoetry.com website and Foreward poetry websites gets published
This poem originally appeared as an entry for Poetry Rivals back in 2013… Those who read it on the board liked it – so I polished it adding an additional verse (and a little intrigue) and placed in Allpoetry.com
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.
