Discuss ‘The Tale of Melon City’ as humorous as well as ironical poem with the help of examples from the poem.

The following are the examples of humour and irony.

The King decided to hang the chief of builders when his crown struck against the low arch.

Then, he decided to get all the labourers hanged. He summoned the masons and ordered to hang the architect. But the amendments to the plans were approved by the King himself. The architect solely blamed the King. The wisest man declared that the arch must be hanged. At last, the noose fitted the King’s neck and he was hanged. An idiot chose the melon as the next King. Even the present King there looks like a melon.
