Friends of Humpty (Ode to a Church's Cannon, Down With the King!)

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall!
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall!
All the king's horses and all the king's men,
couldn't put Humpty together again!


OR, Ye Olde Othere Versione:


Humpty-Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty-Dumpty had a great fall;
Threescore men and threescore more
Cannot place Humpty-Dumpty as he was before. (An egg.)[redacted for your safety]
