Walter Mitty

W (1)

Walter lives an exciting life

And though he has ten kids and a wife

He goes on secret missions, but cannot tell

Sometimes I think his head will swell

With all the compliments he receives

From people that actually believe

His endless fantastic tales

Of killing sharks and saving whales

Once on a very turbulent flight

When  people were screaming in fright

He was the only one to remain calm

And safely brought the Airbus down

The details he did not discuss

Claiming he didn’t want a fuss

A famous actor ( name classified)

He met the night they almost died

Said he looked so dark and moody

He should be really in the movies

So he took lessons for one day

Then got the lead in a major play

What it was, no one knows

As the details he could not disclose

He really has a neck like brass

Setting up his his own drama class

He was injured once on a secret mission

involving heavy ammunition

That’s how he got his limp he said

When he was almost left for dead

But you know that the real story

Isn’t nearly half as gory

He caught his foot in his bicycle pedal

But God knows where he got his bravery medal

Because Walter, our super hero showman

Is none other than our local postman.
