Humpty Dumpty Reboot

These Unsaid Things.This is a more modern, real life version of the nursery rhyme. I am a caregiver for my aging father who is incontinent and is not able stand or walk without a walker. In one day he fell three times. The night after I had this poem rumbling in my head. 29 words.


Humpty Dumpty Reboot

Humpty Dumpty teetered on a wall.
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All of Humpty's children
And his only wife
Could not save
Humpty Dumpty's life.
