Background Wally the Werk Funny Poems 2



“Whatever happened to Wally the Werk?”

“At school he seemed - well, like a bit of a berk”

     “He wasted his time at school in our class

     And how the poor teachers he loved to harass.”


“He was boring, was stupid and a bit of a wimp.”

“He was lazy and crazy with hair long and limp!”

    “I never knew Wally to polish his shoes.”

    “When other folk worked, he’d be having a snooze.”


“So, what did become, then, of Wally the Werk?”

When I tell you the truth, you really will smirk,

     For Wally’s done well – he’s a millionaire!

     So if you are a wally, you mustn’t despair.
