the price of sitting

we, the king's men,

(all four of us)

are tired


for we can not put Humpty

back together again


we, the king's men,

(some of us are women)

have had just about enough


and we do not 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 always ascend the wall?

Why does he never learn from the fall?
