Poem of the Day


Humpty Dumpty


Humpty Dumpty

jumped in the sea.


Humpty Dumpty

sank instantly.


All the young mermaids

and their mermen


couldn’t get Humpty

to surface again.

Poetry Prompt #26

Katherine says: I like the note of  panic hinted at in your #26 prompt. It reminded me of my poem ‘’Humpty Dumpty’ which is jokey,  a  cry for help in a sense,  but very  tongue-in-cheek. I’ve enjoyed some sessions with children in which we tried to put a new slant on nursery-rhymes.
