Wednesday #limerick: bubble, lumber, wreck

Each Wednesday, I compose a limerick using the prompt over at Three Word Wednesday. Today's words are: bubble, lumber, wreck.

On the bubble, the boy was a wreck.
Would his grades keep him out of CalTech?
But Daddy's remission
Greased the skids of admission.
A fortune from lumber: stacked deck.
