A Silly Song (our occasional feature)

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall—
Or so the story goes.
The real event he underwent
No one really knows.

So just suppose. . . 

Humpty Dumpty lay on a chaise,
Humpty Dumpty soaked up some rays,
Humpty Dumpty looked at the pool,
Humpty Dumpty acted the fool.

As an egg, of course, HD could not swim.
He sank to the bottom— and everyone forgot him!
Too, too late was the King's lifeguard:
When they fished him out, he was boiled hard.

Acknowledged: the last line uses (in order to scan) the popular convenience of the plural pronoun, which we generally deplore.
