Humpty Dumpty fell off the wall
Now it's a corporate whore
Seducing us all
To eat all the others
Before they fall..

And the truth shall set you free............
Humpty Dumpty was in fact an unusually large canon which was mounted on the protective wall of "St. Mary's Wall Church" in Colchester, England. It was intended to protect the Parliamentarian stronghold of Colchester which was in the temporarily in control of the Royalists during the period of English history, described as the English Civil War ( 1642 - 1649). A shot from a Parliamentary canon succeeded in damaging the wall underneath Humpty Dumpty causing the canon to fall to the ground. The Royalists 'all the King's men' attempted to raise Humpty Dumpty on to another part of the wall but even with the help of ' all the King's horses' failed in their task and Colchester fell to the Parliamentarians after a siege lasting eleven weeks.
Where were the eggs when they needed them????

Thanks Matt for this eggcellent shot and the enlightenment and revelation received via it.

Incredible less grain for a portra 800. And an incredible motive too.
