A Poem for Donna

A change is coming to Belmont Town.

At least for the guys, who hang around

At Terry's Variety and sometimes Lunch,

Things will soon change for the whole Dang Bunch.


Donna's hearing is good above the noise,

She hears the jokes of all the boys,

Her "squeky" voice will change to a roar.

Hey, you Guys, don't slam the door.


She wanders around to beat the band,

With her little coffee pot in hand.

Creamers in her pocket and Nutra Sweet too;

She really knows what's best for you.


Her noon hour specials really seem to sell;

Even if that night you don't feel so well.

But all of us recover real soon;

We're back again next day at noon.


Don't complain about a pain in the solar Plexus,

Or else the old witch is liable to Hexus;

She'll fly off the handle and go really high;

But not quite as high as her day old pie.


She came from Thorndale. not from Yonkers,

So I don't really know what drove her "Bonkers."

Maybe we'll miss her a little bit,

Like you miss poison ivy when you get over it.


If it's your birthday, you're broke or someone's sick

Donna jumps to the front real quick.

People like Mrs. Muggs, are really few

All kidding aside, we're going to really miss you.
