The Price of Sitting

we, the king’s men,
(all four of us)
are tired

and we can’t put Humpty
back together
again

we, the king’s men,
(some of us are women)
have had just about enough

and we don’t really want
to help him up
this time

we, the king’s men,
(no horses here)
know that it’s no use

for old Humpty Dumpty
will just fall down
again

Why must he continue to re-ascend the wall?
Why does he never, ever learn from his fall?
