Popeye, The Sailor Man
A clever fellow encountered once,
Had a card that marked him no dunce.
On it was a picture of an ugly sailor.
With forearms that would daunt a tailor.
He urged us eat spinach with our ham.
The message said, "I yam what I yam!"
William's Whimsical Words:
and, that's all that I yam.
