Humpty Dumpty’s backstory

Lately as you fall asleep
you ask me
mama, talk about things
but you don’t mean anything
you want the backstory
like what was Humpty Dumpty like as a baby
and where did Mother Hubbard get her dog

but last night
it was the next chapter you asked for
the part after Humpty falls off the wall

you sing it non-stop
so I thought you got it
that there is no tomorrow for the poor guy

but when I explained this
you burst into tears
and so it is
that you will grow up
believing that he went on
to invent
the helmet.
