Humpty Dumpty in the Style of Edgar Allan Poe

So I missed Poe's birthday by one day, but this is worth it: a version of "Humpty Dumpty" written by Dylan Curry in the style of Edgar Allan Poe. The poem:

Once upon a wall of stone
Sat Humpty Dumpy all alone
Shrouded in a web of gloom
His fate as near as tomorrow's tomb

For earth called him
As he teetered and fell
And the ground took him
And mangled his shell

All the angels in heaven
And Demons below
Were soaked in yolk
As they fought for his soul

Now my own days grow shorter
The final hour is soon
And as Humpty before me
I must bid you adieu
