Naughty Glen



A grade 5 teacher one day asked the children in her class to make rhymes with their names.


First up was Dan. A very adventurous child.

My name is Dan,

When I grow up to be a man,

I want to go to India and Japan,

If I can, if I can, if I can.

“Very good”, the teacher said to Dan.

She then asked Sally that it was now her turn.

My name is Sally,

When I grow up to be a lady,

I want to have a baby,

If I can, if I can, if I can.

“That is good Sally,” the teacher said. “But maybe one day you will change your mind. “Next up was Glen. He was the naughty one in the class. Here is his rhyme:


My name is Glen,

When I grow up to be a man,

Never mind India and Japan,

I’m gonna help Sally with her plan,

I know I can, I can, I can.
