Larry the Librarian

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

We got a new librarian this year.
His name is Larry.
And Larry doesn’t know his elbow
from a dictionary.

He can’t suggest a magazine
or help you find a book.
He doesn’t have the slightest clue
of where you ought to look.

He cannot find the poetry,
geography or sports,
and Larry isn’t any help
when writing book reports.

To top it off he’s rather loud
and something of a slob.
It’s really quite bewildering
how Larry got this job.

And yet, despite his cluelessness,
we find he’s pretty handy.
For, on his desk, he always keeps
a giant jar of candy.
