Humpty Dumpty Lee

Humpty Dumpty Lee, sat on a wall
Humpty Dumpty Lee, will have a great fall.
And all the PAP's toadies, and all the PAP's propagandists
Will not be able to put Humpty Dumpty Lee together again.

This is an  old nursery rhyme which has been around for centuries. The above version, written by, as nursery rhymes usually are, anonymous author, is of more recent vintage. We cannot be sure, but we suspect it may refer to Mr.Lee Kuan Yew, or perhaps Mr.Lee Hsien Loong. It doesn't really matter, there is little difference between the two. They are both, enemies of human freedom, and they will both, use every repression, to stay in power.

We have also discovered a haiku that appears to refer to them, again by unknown author, though we suspect he may be Japanese, as it is they who usually write haikus.

Sunny June morning,
Humpty Dumpty PAP blown away by the wind.

Is he saying the elections will be in June?

Both these somewhat questionable pieces of poetic attempt, appear to indicate that the PAP is headed for a fall in the coming elections.

And why this curious obsession with Humpty Dumpty by unconnected poets?

We had to investigate, and after much googling, found this reference to Humpty Dumpty, by the highly unpoetic Mr.Lee Kuan Yew.

"You know, the cure for all this talk is really a good dose of incompetent government. You get that alternative and you'll never put Singapore together again: Humpty Dumpty cannot be put together again... and your asset values will disappear, your apartment will be worth a fraction of what it is, your jobs will be in peril, your security will be at risk and our women will become maids in other people's countries, foreign workers."

He missed out earthquakes, and tornadoes, and acid rain, as well, perhaps, as a plague of frogs!

In fact, it is not Singapore that is Humpty Dumpty, it is Mr.Lee himself.  And the wall on which he sits, is no longer as solid as it used to be. Eggs, when they fall and break, it is indeed true, cannot be put together. And Mr.Lee, is a decidedly rotten egg.

If anybody's jobs will be in peril, it will be Mr.Lee's own. As well as his son's. And his daughter-in-law's. This exceedingly well-paid trio, are costing Singapore at least S$10 Million a year. Of course, Mr.Lee will have us believe that they are doing incredibly good jobs and are blessed with impeccable judgement. If that were true, Ms.Ho Ching would not have used Temasek's funds to buy into Shin Corp, which promptly lost half it's value. Nor would Mr.Lee Hsien Loong have led Singapore into a recession. If he says America too was in recession, then we must remind him that he is paid 20 times as much as Mr.Obama, while managing a population 100 times smaller. Nor would Mr.Lee Kuan Yew be making silly, hurtful statements from which he would have to embarassingly backtrack. They are ordinary people, we fear, with extraordinarily high opinions of themselves.

Also in peril will be the jobs of whatever other relatives and friends Mr.Lee has placed; in monstrously-remunerated jobs, all over Singapore.

All lustily gorging themselves, snouts quivering with greed, beady eyes unblinking, off Singapore's public funds.
