The Hole

No one knew what caused it
Or how the hole got there.
The sheriff found it first
And showed it to the mayor.

Schoolboys were the next
To come and gather ’round.
With nothing else to do
In this stiff-necked little town.

Jimmy and his puppy
Then came to see the sight.
The sheriff checked the hole
With his big police searchlight.

“Just what is this hole for?”
Jim asked with boyish frown.
The sheriff joked he planned
To bury all the crooks in town.

“You can’t do that,” Jim said,
With a great big impish grin.
“There’d be nobody left
To help me fill it in!”
