HNY?

 

(For All Who Fall beneath the Pall)
 

Hey diddle
diddle
Nero will fiddle
 
whilst the rest
of us lie
aswoon
 

life for a few
is a merry old
sport
 
and they are
all so
over the moon
 
*
 
Old King Cole
is a droll
old troll
 
he has fired
his
fiddlers three
 
his pipe
he
gets from Salvador
 
his bowl
from
over the sea

 
*
 
For that’s the
way
we do things here

in the land of
the bare
and the free

 
*
 
Humpty Dumpty
planned a great
wall
 
to keep riffraff
at bay
 
when the
beggarly rose
in dire dismay
 
Humpty
fled
clean away
 
*
 
Birds of
a feather
now plot
together
 
along with
cohort
swine
 
masters could lose
their
fiddling sticks
 
and dames
run
out of wine

 
*
 
Alack Jack isn’t
nimble
no more
 
they shipped
his work off
to a foreign shore
 
like Oliver
now
he begs for more
 
*
 
Mother Hubbard
is short one
cupboard
 
they took
away her
dole
 

the country
is bare
but everywhere
 
and they have
repossessed
our soul
