Toil Room
Poetry by Wally


No, No, No, workroom is the name,

where Elk Grove Senior citizens work, not for fame.


But volunteer to help defray expenses,

so the center can maintain its senses.


For you see the work involved is bagging parts,

mail advertising-literature and assembling,
which needs no smarts.


The seniors seem to enjoy lending a hand,

they are a good group of people in a band.


Keeps the seniors on their toes,

they would be thinking of their woes.


Now the man directing the workroom,

is the man whom is making it boom.


The man is ingenious, to keep abreast,

with his other activities, it must be hard to rest.


For you see he has quite a load to carry,

the congenial gentlemanís name, is Phil Barry.
