Mr Wallace had a sister who was very different than him
Where he was short and fat, she was tall and slim!
But the differences did not just stop there. Oh no, there were more.
Where he was slightly diffident she was confidently sure.
They went to the pub one night to have a drink or two.
There was a quiz going on so they stayed for quite a few!
They won the prize that night and went home to bed,
But in the morning the maid found one; laid out dead!
Mr Wallace was dead in his bedroom,
But the prize and his sister were gone.
She was last seen on a boat
Sailing on the Amazon!
Now the reason behind his murder was the prize of which I’ve not told
It was the millionth copy of The Desolate Garden that Danny Kemp had sold!
