Have you heard of one Humpty Dumpty
How he fell with a roll and a rumble
And curled up like Lord Olofa Crumple
By the butt of the Magazine Wall,
(Chorus) Of the Magazine Wall,
Hump, helmet and all ?
Finnegans Wake, I, 2, p. 45.
Une ballade rappelant Lewis Carrol ---
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 Dumpty in his place again.
Lewis Carroll, Through the looking-glass.
