Finished Humpty Dumpty Illustration

Donald Trump as Humpty Dumpty standing on a wall with barbed wire, two skeletons in the background, made with watercolors, copyright 2019 Kat MicariThis illustration is the big one I’ve been working on all year. I’m excited it’s done! It’s the accompanying piece to the poem Humpty Dumpty’s Reign which I posted at the end of last year, and I added an extra stanza to it this summer. I’m posting it again below.

Humpty Dumpty’s Reign

 

Humpty Dumpty crowned himself king

He said “It really don’t mean a thing!

Cuz you’ve been serfs for years

So forget all your fears

And keep pretending freedom will ring.”

 

Humpty Dumpty wanted a wall,

And to get it, he had the actual gall

To shout “Let’s get the ball rollin’!”

And try to use capital stolen

From people who have no will left to stall

 

Humpty Dumpty let humans be caged.

Children wailing, parents enraged.

He thought them unequal at best,

More like an animal or pest.

Using them to keep his supporters assuaged.

 

Humpty Dumpty spewed out his lies,

Never hearing the people’s painful cries

“It’s as if they’re already dead,

So I’ll ignore the sounds in my head,

And continue to crush them like flies.”

 

Humpty Dumpty’s fall from grace

Will leave a nation with a big empty space

You can bet the men of power have met

To choose and pull out a new puppet

Thus continuing the system of control apace.
