Willard Scott ~ Depart us ~ Please not

By Bill McCurdy (c) 2015

 

Willard Scott ~ Depart us ~ Please not,

Your smiling red face still joy-puckers.

If you leave us right now ~ well, My Gosh, Holy Cow,

Who’ll do the shout-outs for Smuckers?

 

“Johnny B. Good’s ~ a hundred big ones today,

Deep down in that place ~ where the coolest cats play.

He don’t bang the guitar so good ~ now, they say,

His arthritic fingers hold ~ life’s sorry sad sway.”

 

Ronald McDonald once came ~ to this luminous life,

He found his beef grease breath ~ all through you.

Those who ate the fat food ~ you so happily knifed,

Gave life to the med phrase ~ “Code Blue” you.

 

You gave 65 years~ to your NBC cheers,

You saw how acts change ~ or dissolve.

You’re walking proof, Willie ~ that TV sells beers,

And that not all survivors ~ evolve.

 

Hang around, Willard,

March 7, 2034 is your big day on the Smucker’s jelly label.
