Wally, The Walrus
My name is Wally the Walrus
I have never ridden on a crowded school bus.
I float around on chunks of ice
because I think it feels really nice.
Sometimes I sit on cold, gray rocks
but I have no need for thick wool socks.
My tusks are long – big and white
I always brush them every night.
I am proud of my tusks and how they look
I think I’ll have my picture took!
