He wanted to be sure. It was time to propose. A wedding yolked in love. If she was the right one, would she pick up the pieces?
(He chuckled to himself, thinking he had picked her up only six months ago)
Now it would be her turn
Only he had a doubt
He had tested her
taste, style, energy, desires
Perhaps more time was needed to mould her
Only there was no time
Now he had to test her heart
And in two minutes she was to arrive at the wall
Mr. Humpty thought: after all two broken legs, some broken ribs
was a relatively small price to pay
for Eternal Love
The music and the refrain sounded in his head
"Hear comes the bride, here comes the bride"
He saw her car,
rocked his body and pushed himself off the top
His body crumpled in a dash as it hit the ground
"And all the media coverage and all the wise men,
couldn't put Humpty together again."
