SATURDAY COVER MAN

SATURDAY COVER MAN

(TO: “Popeye the Sailor Man”)

I’m a Saturday Cover Man,

I work when one has other plans…

I substitute

But this was my route,

Most things I understand!

Was hired to work weekends

It’s been a long time since then…

Was switched to week nights

With all those delights,

‘Til now, haven’t returned again!

He and I became friends,

From seven years of weekends…

Our sympathy

To his family,

Next week this covering ends.
