Editorial Cartoon by Rob Rogers at the Pittsburgh Post Gazette

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall

Humpty Dumpty had a great fall

His medical keepers and guards of the day

Rescued poor Humpty

And whisked him away

The press had been told not to film the event

So they stayed behind

And off humpty went

The truth of the fall might never be known

But for a video

Made with a phone

So they said he was hot, they said he was sick

They said he was actually

Sound as a brick

The story got jumbled in all the confusion

A garbled attempt

To preserve an illusion

The press speculated far into the night

That Humpty was simply

Allergic to height

Alas for the media women and men

They’ll never put Humpty

Together again

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall

Humpty Dumpty had a great fall

Just like a blessing sent down from heaven

Poetic justice

On date 9/11
