When the chalk fell and broke into pieces, on the floor,
Fat boy Jim, in uncontrollable mirth, started to roar.
Teacher James, not finding this very funny,
Ordered Jim, “Now you will pick it up,sonny!”
When Jim bent down to obey,as much as he could bear,
There was a whir.r.r.r, the unmistakable sound of a tear;
Though poor Jim’s pants had given up at his rear,
He nevertheless picked up the pieces without a care.
When the class burst out in spontaneous merriment,
James knew not how to overcome this predicament;
But the brave Jim, though part of him was bare,
Roared, “Come on- laugh at me, if you dare!"
