nursery rhyme poem #2

there’s a murder mystery where
real folk and nursery rhyme folk
mingle nonchalantly together
lots of nursery hanky panky
as anyone who recites mother
goose can affirm spankings thefts
kissing girls until they cry this
book’s victim is humpty dumpty
they test his albumen rather than
blood stains the forensic dept
admits a scantiness of data on
egg dna it’s all very clever but
here is my question where in
all literature does it ever say
humpty dumpty is an egg I’m
familiar with the rhyme from
ancient texts to modern only in
the pictures do we learn humpty’s
ethnicity by the way it’s lewis
carroll who gave us his smug and
irascible personality and sir
john tenniel who immortalized
his bland and expansive looks
