July 11th…“DID YOUR FATHER EVER INVENT SOMETHING THAT MADE FISHING EASIER?
POEM – “Daddy’s Wacky Worming Wonder Rod” by N. Elliott Noorlun
Whenever our dad went fishin’, He’d make his plan real firm,
In order to catch his limit, He’d need more than just one worm.
Ol’ Pop would throw out coffee grounds, In flowerbeds round the house,
And assisting him, For his fishing whim, Was his dear and loving spouse.
Now who wants to sweat, In order to get, Enough worms to last the day?
Since they lived down under, He’d have to plunder, To bring them to light his way.
He could use a shovel, To bring worms up, But that would take too long,
There must be a method, If he thought long enough, That would turn a chore to song.
As time went by, Our inventor dad guy, Came up with a zippy zap notion,
An electric rod, Shoved into the sod, Would cause them worms commotion.
Some wires did lead, From the rod’s end feed, And plugged right into the wall.
It made those worms squirt, Right outta the dirt, Dad gathered, no problem at all.
Dad got a good giggle, From seeing them wiggle, So fast to get out of that soil.
As he readied the can, Our inventor man, Went fishing without any toil. 😉
