week’s Young Writers Project piece – with audio – is by Gerret Margolis, a
seventh grader at Frances Richmond Middle School, who performed the piece at a
recent YWP Poetry Slam and reflects the untold story of Mr. Humpty Dumpty.

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall
The king’s finest horse and the king’s
right hand man
To put him together they both made a plan
Together they gathered all of the kings
Together they tried to find Humpty’s right shape
When they finally taped back together
The horse cried "We taped his mouth shut, can’t you tell"
And so they took all of the pieces
But then they had no slight idea where to start
Suddenly the horse had a plan yet
"Who knew the shape of eggs better then a hen!"
Remember my children that it was the
That put Humpty Dumpty together again
