Wally Lives In Wisconsin


Under the wings of the Golden Eagle,
Wally was born in Wisconsin,
By buxom youth, now feeble.

He chomped on blue cheese burgers,
In the cradle of the free, and,
He nailed the home coming queen,
Listening to Jerry Lee.

Wally knew in life, that there was no God,
Bigger than money, and,
He always maintained that he preferred,
Maple syrup to honey.

He embraced values of live and let die,
Wally liked younger girls,
Asian, especially Thai.

This was the playhouse that he built,
With his wife and children,
Who helped spare him his guilt.

Supported the Contras,
Remembered San Juan hill,
Wally was a God fearing christian,
Whose daughters were on the pill.

Stole, hunted and killed,
Under beautiful Big Sky,
Wally never once asked how,
He never wondered why.

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
