His instructor said he must wear tights Most essential in these sorts of flights Fred said take them away Folks would think I was gay The truth is that Fred’s scared of heights Fred fibbed that he’d been a wing walker A falsehood, this sure was a corker His relations soon found He did not leave the ground It’s a good job he’s a fast talker! Inspired by The Wing Walker by Tom Cunningham https://www.poetrysoup.com/poem/the_wing_walker_990038 2/06/18
