The lip smacking, gum snapping, bubble blowing Guy.


Julene Hunter

There was once a young boy named Barry Berude. He blew chewing gum bubbles. He chomped, cracked and chewed.


He started the habit on one sunny morn, exactly three years from the day he was born. His mother had taken him down to the beach, when Barry saw something gooey-pink within reach.

He picked it up with little or no trouble, stuck it in his mouth and blew a large bubble.


so large

He blew one that he started to rise. When his mother looked up,

what a surprize!

She saw little Barry floating around. She yelped, and she hollered,

“BARRY! Come down!”

From that day to now Barry sealed his fate! He’s become quite addicted, and that’s not too great. Now Barry wins contests for blowing bubbles the best. But after those end,

Why look -

Barry Berude! He’s floating around with a new attitude. He was carried away by the wind and the clouds. He’s gathered some followers gathered some crowds.

But he drifted along and in time in his bubble he found a nice place with

hardly a trouble.

And now he’s forgotten by all except me. I know he’s still flying.

Happy, carefree.
