When first we came down from the trees
Not all of us did aim to please
Most improved by vast degrees
Except the race of Wannabes

Though they learned to walk erect
And passed for us in most respects
Motivation they were lacking
To throw the spear or go game tracking

Content to lie by other's fires
They dreamed of that which to aspire
When embers cooled for want of wood
They pondered who among us should

Re-kindle that which kept them warm
So one of us who I'll call Norm
Would set off deep into the night
To bring the wood to make things right

And so on down through history
We co-exist with Wannabes
And things get done when need arises
By those like Norm who wear no guises



 Sometimes nonsense isn't .

The Moose has spoken... so that we shall see
The all to sad truth... of the Wannabe

A more accurate tale could not be told. Well done Dr. Moose.  

PS. Liked Second Op.  Fudd has nothing on ya.

Andrew,
Glad you liked , but I think Fudd's got it in for you now . You better watch out for him !
I heard he was saying some rather challanging things about you on second opinion .

Hey, I know some of these Wannabes! Such a slothful bunch, aren't they?!

Dr. Moose... never fear, I've peeled and cooked the little spud. Stop by for some Fudd Stew if you get a chance.

I once met some Wannabes
while staying with the Usetobes.
They brought along the Hadtobes,
but now there's only Norm & me.
