Hi everybody.
I would like to ask you what do these words refer to...The fragment is from a storybook and i am not sure about the meaning of the words " HORSES" and " MEN"

"Humpty-Dumpty sat on a wall
Humpty-Dumpty had a great fall
All the king's horses, and all the king's men
Cannot put Humpty-Dumpty together again."

Could HORSES refer to CAVALRY?
Could MEN refer to SERVANTS?
to me they seem to have these meanings?

Thx a lot!:lol:
