Humpty Dumpty and Penoy

Humpty Dumpty was a much beloved character from the land Nursery Rhyme while Penoy is a close relation of the Balut. The difference between the two is that while the Balut is a boiled duck egg with a fully developed duckling inside; the Penoy is a boiled unfertilised duck egg. Now what if we were to give literary life to penoy and make him like Humpty Dumpty what would the appropriate rhyme be?

Here is one of the many rhymes of Humpty Dumpty:

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall
All the king’s horses and all the king’s men
Could not put Humpty Dumpty together again

And now could this be one of the rhymes for Penoy?

Penoy sat on a wall playing video games with a man named Paul
But alas Penoy slipped and had a great fall
All forty-seven government men and All forty-seven doctors of spin
Could not put poor Penoy together again
