Case 001- Humpty Dumpty - Poem by Soma Mukherjee

When Humpty Dumpty sat on the wall
Was it summer, winter or fall?
Was it a weekday or a weekend?
Wish they were someplace else with a friend.

Was it a murder or a sucide?
I am yet to investigate and decide
And in case of later was there somone
in whom they did confide?

Someone told me yesterday that
Humpty-Dumpty were not two people but one
But no one knows for sure how many they were
And if it all was staged just for fun

Some say they had no reason to be unhappy
As they had planned a double date
Miss Muffet with Humpty and Jill with Dumpty
But look at their ill fate

Miss Muffet was scared by a spider during her lunch
This was a set-up, I have a hunch
Plus Jill who definitely has a history with falling
Remember her ex jack who broke his crown
Lost his memory, but says there definitely was some hauling

So many mysteries surroundiing this case
Like why would an egg sit on a wall in first place
and a rumour troubling me the most
that the kings men had them scrambled with toast!
