A Farmer’s answer to the U.S. Census Bureau.
by C. Allen Benson.
Inspired by P. R. Graves.
I got a cow, a pig, a sow, and a plow.
Dirty hands and a sweaty brow.
I got a calf-and-a-half, down the road.
Three creeks, two dogs, one pond, no toads.
I got a mule in the field, I have to feed.
And a jackass like you, who want answers from me.
About things that are none of your concern.
Please take this seriously.
I think it’s my turn.
