Humpty Dumpty – The Rest of the Story

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall.  Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.

The king’s horses and the king’s men tried to put Humpty Dumpty back together again.

However, poor Humpty Dumpty cracked his shell.

Humpty Dumpty was taken to the hospital for a medical evaluation and an insurance consultation.

A surgery was required to save Humpty Dumpty’s life.  However, with the insurance agent there was much strife.

The insurance company refused to pay, because the accident happened on a rainy day.

The surgery was performed and the doctor saved Humpty Dumpty’s life.  Then the doctor gave a bill to Humpty Dumpty’s wife.

The surgery cost was more than Humpty Dumpty could ever pay, even if he worked all night and day.

Humpty Dumpty called a lawyer in town.  He filed for bankruptcy, but refused to frown.

Humpty Dumpty’s credit score was shot, but at least he didn’t die.  He said, “I’ll become a politician and fight for better insurance regulations,” then let out a sigh.

Humpty Dumpty is now a leader in the Egg Head party, fighting for insurance parity and equality.

Mousetrap Destruction Brigade – Poetry

I wrote this poem several years ago; however, it’s still one of my favorites.

The Mousetrap Destruction Brigade

Once upon a time
There were five little mice
Working hard for cheese and rice
Serving in the Mousetrap Destruction Brigade
Allowing all mice to live to an old age
Timesheets were due on Thursday
If they wanted food on payday
One mouse ignored this rule
On payday he felt like a fool
For he had no food and was starving
He took cheese from a trap they were disarming
I am sad to say
The mouse died that day
However, since that date
Not one timesheet has been late
