The Unfortunate Tale Of Roger Stodge

Little Roger Stodge School he loved to dodge Yes Roger loved to play The truant game His parents didn’t know That Roger didn’t go Everyday Roger Did the same Every morning with no fuss He’d get onto the bus Then get off again At the very next stop He’d spend his dinner money On candy bars made from honey And bottle after bottle of fizzy pop Roger thought it didn’t matter That eating junk food made him fatter Then one day, Headmaster came walking down the lane Roger, suddenly quite manic And in a hurried panic Jumped and hid in a sewer drain Headmaster walked on by Roger gave a relieved sigh But Roger was completely out of luck He wiggled and he wriggled He wriggled and he wiggled But alas poor Roger was completely stuck Now I am afraid I have to say Roger is still there to this day And you know, He didn’t even have to go to school It was the holidays For it was summer See not going to school Does make you dumber Silly Roger, the tubby little fool
