I should not have looked at Winona Sue
the prettiest girl in grade four
but if you know her, then you would too
So, Johnny Kerpucket, he scored
I wasn't looking at the dirt covered lot
my favourite girl was around
So I didn't see Johnny Kerpucket's shot
roll along the ground
Johnny Kerpucket has the neatest toys
and wears the coolest clothes
Winona says he's her favourite of boys
when I heard him snicker, I froze!
He laughed as his marble rolled into the hole
then he said, "I guess that's how it goes"
"You cheated!", I yelled, "you slippery mole"
and punched him right square in the nose
Into Principal Mavis' Study
Ms. Marshall dragged my left ear
She said, "Principal, Johnny Kerpucket is bloody"
"and that's why this vile lad's here"
"Principal Mavis, ", I started to stutter
"I was fighting for my llife!"
"and to top it all off", a worse lie did I mutter,
"I saw Johnny, he was kissing your wife!"
"Johnny Kerpucket is the smartest of lads"
said the principal without a smile
"Quite frankly, quite likely, he's the best student we've had,
You're going to be here a while"
And so, into detention by the big man, I'm tossed
but, if that alone wasn't enough
what stinks, what STINKS, about this whole stinkin day
is that,to Johnny, my marbles were lost
