HISTORICAL MUSINGS

Here is the completion of the poem entitled the "The Canning Club"

Then pack him down tight in a sterilized can
but to do this, alas means many a man
To the trenches must go
So the women of Lipscomb must sew, sew, SEW.

Then put in the cooker and steam until done
Which will take until the war is won
And one of the ways to do your bit
Is begin right now to knit, knit, KNIT.

Then remove from the cooker and clamp the lid tight
On Autocracy, Intemperance and all things not RIGHT
There is work for all, so unless you're a miser
Come join the RED CROSS and help CAN the KAISER.
written by LIPSCOMB CANNING CLUB.

My wish for rain came true so I hope our gardens grow, grow, GROW.
