The Inquiry

0

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
Was he pushed or did he jump?
Thus began the murder hunt.

Little Miss Muffet had been nearby.
They found traces of curds and whey,
Incy Wincy Spider had sat down beside her
and seen her going away.

Three blind mice had threatened Hump twice,
But it certainly wasn’t them.
They’d been up the clock with Dickory Doc,
Their alibi was a gem.

The Inquiry was stumped,
When it turned out Hump jumped,
In a fit of doom and gloom.
He’d never more kiss, with the women he missed.
’Cos his dish ran away with a spoon.
