the classic nursery rhyme humpty dumpty ... Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall, Humpty Dumpty had a great fall; All the king's horses and all the king's men Couldn't put Humpty together again. is surprisingly dark for a nursery rhyme. not once is it mentioned that humpty is a egg so he is most likely a human. so why if you search the rhyme humpty depicted as a egg. even if he was a egg he still dies at the end. so why do we see him as a egg maybe to make the story less disturbing. why do we have nursery rhymes and why tell them to kids. i have no clue all i know is that they can have hidden meanings like ring a ring a rose what is about the black death. why am i posting this... because it is 5 in the morning and yer.
