Willie the Burper
By Bill Dodds
Some kids can talk like Donald Duck,
some kids know how to chirp.
But Willie J. can swallow air
and then rip off a burp.
He'll belch at home and in the car
and at his grandma's, too.
His grandpa always laughs and says,
"That's what I used to do."
"It's not my fault," he tells his mom,
"that they're inside of me.
I feel them run around down there
and want to set them free."
It's hard to say what causes this,
but there's no use to try.
I wonder how a zillion burps
fit in this little guy.
