The story of Humpty Dumpty is a fairytale that has been told and re-told. You would never read the story of a man who was an egg, who fell to his death, and all the great men in the community could not fix him to your child. Yet, as a nursery rhyme Humpty’s story has been a favorite for generations.
The absurdity of a fairy tale does not matter, it is all about the silliness of the rhymes for them.
