Jelly Beans
and Sardines

He was smart and he said
he taught science at college.
He told me his name
was Professor Van Knowledge.

But no one who lived
in Mud City had heard,

and daft and quite wacky.
They said that his manner
of dress was right tacky.

They laughed at things which
he spent time inventing.
They scoffed and pee-shawed
at his experimenting.
