Sylvester the Strongman

Sylvester the Strongman was strong as an ox.
He hoisted the heaviest barbells and rocks.
He’d lift up a luggage set loaded with lead
and elevate elephants over his head.
He’d never lift anything less than a ton.
He’d shoulder a Ford or a Chevy for fun.

Well one day Sylvester was feeling so bold
he said “I will show you a sight to behold!”
He raised up a railroad engine and sniffed,
“I wish I could find something HEAVY to lift.”
He stood there a moment, conceited and smug,
then Strong-Man Sylvester was crushed like a bug.
