MY HISTORY TEACHER.

WAS MY HISTORY TEACHER POOR?

IS THAT WHY HE NEVER TAUGHT?

MAYBE HE'S A SECRET MILLIONAIRE

WHO FORGOT HIS DATES,

PAID ALL HIS RATES

AND STILL HAD SOME TO SPARE.

HE CERTAINLY HAD PLENTY OF HAIR

I SWEAR.

 

MAYBEHE TAUGHT US HOW TO WORK

BUT HE DIDN'T SEEM LIKE A 'JERK.'

AND SOME SAY TO ME

YOU HAVEN'T 'LEARNED' MUCH.

BUT I LISTENED AND WATCHED

AND HARDLY EVER SPOKE

TO THE BLOKE

(HE LIKED A SMOKE)

YET WHEN I PAID FOR A CAR

FROM HIS PLACE

IT WAS A WASTE,

AND FULL OF RUST

AND COPPER COINS,

THERE TO ANNOY!

FOR THOSE POOR MEN

WHO'D ESCAPED FROM TROY

WHAT A BOY!?
