Though it's now many years since he died,
His work is known far and wide,
AND believe it OR NOT,
It's still used a lot,
Whenever computers decide.
Thank you for the shows you made,
When I was still a teen.
Your name promised excitement,
Whenever it appeared on screen.
But of all the classic characters,
That I'd like to thank you for,
I'd have to pick Wilma Deering,
And those costumes that she wore.
Strangers from different places,
They wed in a tropical clime,
It may be a rocky marriage,
But it's lasted for quite some time.
He lays them on the table,
Works magic with his knife,
Gives those without a future,
A brand new lease of life.
I know she's on the heavy side,
She's slow and grinds her teeth.
Some say she tends to undermine,
Makes trouble underneath.
But I think she's amazing,
The way she works all day,
Pushing ever forward,
Through gravel, chalk and clay.
