The dichotomy of Big Willy


The dichotomy of Big Willy


A thoroughly modern man

He takes the tube, at five past eight precisely

In bowler hat and pin stripe suit, kerchief looking cute

Umbrella under arm, heís turned out nicely.


Entering the bank his subordinates quiver at his gaze

He is furnished with a coffee and his copy of the Times

They follow him like sheep as appointments he must keep

Secretaries await dictated lines.


A priority for repossessions, he never makes concessions

He ruins valiant people all the while

He will neutralise their hopes and grease their slippery slopes

And does this with a most accomplished style.


Zooming out the office

On the tube by five past five

Heís wearing his wifeís knickers

And itís good to be alive.

Reminds me of something that would come from Monty Python. Enjoy your humor and great writings, Bri

Sure sounds like you have a great deal of respect for this gentleman...  I am glad they don't allow guns in Great Britain.

Alas -- American bankers are less gloriously dressed, but they do the same fine work as the English ones, the bloody barons.  Very good writing, sir!  --David

I expected something more like this Bill:-


Big Willy is an early riser,

I  cannot keep him down.

Every morning at half past six

He's ready to go to town.


I get up with a bladder full

But Willy refuses to play

I sit on the throne bursting to go

But Willy won't go away.


I try to think of other things

To dampen Willy's desire

But Willy wants what Willy wants -

He's inflated with desire.


The pain and urgency to go

Gets worse and worse and worse

Big Willy you're a gift sometimes

But right now you're a curse!

I just love the way this flows. It's perfect, from the descriptions of the heartless, very English bank manager, to the the light-hearted  bouncy metering...This deserves the coveted CP Hubcap Award...LOVE IT!!!!...len
