The Good The Bad And The Bully
Reader Star Rating:
A rhyming story, a spin-off about children captured from the spaghetti western movie titled
'The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.'
In a small school in Minnesota, there lived a good boy named Phil.
He was a very bright young boy, helping his elders and the ill.
Phil was just 12 years old, with freckles and a crop of red hair.
One day on his way home a bully named Joey gave him a scare.
Phil was riding his bike through a puddle and Joey pushed him down
Joey laughed and pointed his finger at Phil like he was a funny clown.
Joey told him he did not like red headed kids as they were cruddy,
Phil picked his bike out of the puddle and walked home all muddy.
Billy was a bad child; he never did anything nice and did not mind.
He had chances to be good, but none did he take to be being kind.
Phil decided he would make Billy become good by using his wit.
He planned his approach for several days on how he would do it.
He told his teacher that he had a way to stop Billy from being mean.
Phil had a simple idea; it was to invite Joey on an adventurous scheme.
His teacher picked volunteers to visit the juvenile delinquent home.
They were Phil, Billy, and Joey; they were not allowed to roam.
Billy saw how these young boys lived and they could not be trusted
They had to wear tracker ankle bracelets to keep them from busted
Billy decided then and there not to become like them and go awry.
Phil spoke to him and he saw the light and decided to be a good guy.
This bully boy Joey, who we previously described as a problem child.
If a stranger who saw his actions would best describe him as being wild.
Joey the bully boys' parents had never taught him right from wrong.
He often bullied little girls and boys and he thought he was very strong.
Phil, the good kid, had parents who taught him to 'Forget and Forgive.'
He was resolute with an idea to correct Joey's bullying and not relive.
Phil's teacher asked Joey's mom if he could go to Boys Town to learn.
She was happy; someone had taken an interest in her son's concern.
It's in Nebraska, near Omaha, where he could learn more about life.
He worked there, studied and learned trades without stress or strife.
Boys Town saves children and heals families, giving them hope.
It is dedicated to the care of at-risk boys and teaches them to cope.
Joey became a fine boy, but it took some time before he had a clue.
He slowly accepted and adapted to a real lifestyle he never knew.
Boys Town has a statue of a lad carrying a younger boy on his back.
'He ain't heavy, Father, He's my brother' is engraved on the plaque.
