Farmer Jack [poem by C. J. Dennis]

Farmer Jack

Old farmer Jack gazed on his wheat,
And feared the frost would nip it.
Said he, “it’s nearly seven feet —
I must begin to strip it.”

He stripped it with a stripper and
He bagged it with a bagger;
The bags were all so lumpy that
They made the lumper stagger.

The lumper staggered up the stack
Where he was told to stack it;
And Jack was paid and put the cash
Inside his linen jacket.
