Humpty and Poe

Did you know that Edgar Allan Poe’s birthday was this week?

He would have been 202, you know, if people really lived multiple centuries.

In honor, Humpty Dumpty rewritten in the style of Poe.

Once upon a wall of stone
Sat Humpty Dumpy all alone
Shrouded in a web of gloom
His fate as near as tomorrow’s tomb

For earth called him
As he teetered and fell
And the ground took him
And mangled his shell

All the angels in heaven
And Demons below
Were soaked in yolk
As they fought for his soul

Now my own days grow shorter
The final hour is soon
And as Humpty before me
I must bid you adieu
