Why Humpty Dumpty Can’t Be Put Together Again

 

Lima beans
from Chile
anchovies from
Brazil,
wild horses
on the
Pampas,
Humpty Dumpty
took a spill.

 

Out poured
all the secrets
that mother
locked away,
the ones about
your father
who didn’t
let you
have your say,
the times
you were
alone at
night &
half the
reasons why,
the things that
made you bitter,
the things that
made you cry.

 

And with this
information
you were
free to
start anew,
but did you
little buckaroo,
or did you
bury what
you knew?

 

We all know
the answer —
wild horses
on the Pampas,
Humpty Dumpty
took a spill.
