Little Willie’s cutest caper
Was to burn the morning paper;
He held its writers in abhorrence,
Especially a guy named Lawrence.*
Published November 17, 1950 in the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
*As you’ve no doubt noticed, there are a number of Little Willies on this site that were first published during the 1950s in the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Columnist Wes Lawrence was the kindred spirit who encouraged his readership to submit Little Willies for publication.
Thank you, Mr. Lawrence, thank you.
