The Wall

By Franks Songs
Rambling by the courthouse
Or through the market square
They mumbled words of recognition
For they knew each other well
While most were from the village
Many walked at least a mile
To gather at the corner
Just beside Jack Humpty's wall

One said a hundred years or so
Some said even more
Others said they knew old men
Who could remember well
When this place was solid empty
And there was no wall at all

The rough grey stone well weathered now
It bears the marks of time
With many secrets of the corner
Locked in it's heart of stone

The lake where sergeant Crispy's
Brand new Raleigh could be found
The man who stole Tim Danby's ferret
And sold it for a pound
The brat who poisoned Winnie's ganders
Just for spite no other grounds
Because she turned him down for marriage
When he came sniffing 'round
But when everything is said
And everything is done
Humpty's wall is very special for many in this town
