White House Nursery Rhymes: ‘The Case Against Humpty Dumpty’ by Roy E. Peterson The Society October 1, 2021 Culture, Humor, Poetry 11 Comments . August 31, 2021 Humpty Dumpty looked at the wallHumpty Dumpty said “This must fall.”Mexican cartels, yes rapists and thugs,Cross now with ease and sold Humpty his drugs. Humpty Dumpty left a long war.Humpty Dumpty said, “What’s this for?”Sitting all cozy in his leather chairLeaving Americans screwed over there. Humpty Dumpty preened “I am woke.”Humpty Dumpty cracked when he spoke.All the King’s horses and all the King’s menCannot put Humpty together again. . . LTC Roy E. Peterson is a writer, retired U.S. Army Military Intelligence Officer, Foreign Area Officer, and Foreign Commercial Officer who currently resides in Texas.
