Mother Goose: Humpty Dumpty and Politics


The other day I was rummaging through some boxes in the basement and found my old Mother Goose nursery rhyme book.

After reading a couple of rhymes, my brain started reworking the rhymes into kooky, political flights of fancy. In other words adult ADHD kicked in, and Humpty Dumpty got turned into a political parody of sorts.

If you want to read on, do so at your own risk.

Humpty Dumpty

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
but it wasn't profitable for Humpty at all.

Humpty Dumpty sat on a stool
but for Humpty Dumpty that, too, was un-cool.

Humpty Dumpty sat on the fence,
just like our local and federal government.

Now Humpty makes money using fence sitting tactics,
by lobbying, filibustering, and other money-grubbing antics.


I told you to read this at your own risk. I hope you've stopped groaning.

I hope they do. The need to know about politics so they can vote intelligently. Thanks for stopping by. I like your nursery rhyme blog.
