* Poem of the day:
What does a snipe look like?From here.
To be honest, they're the trickiest bird to spot.
They don't fly very well but they tend to hide a lot.
A kinda cross between a pigeon and an owl,
it's a strange bird, one that deserves to be called fowl.
A rooster with a comb, like antlers on a moose;
Many experts would say, it looks like a wild goose.
How do you catch a snipe?
Pillowcases are nice; a garbage bag 'l do.
My brother got lucky; he hit one with his shoe.
I made a super cage out of a cardboard box;
baby snipes are the easiest ones to outfox.
It takes at least two guys; one has to tie the rope
the first one hangs on; if it's real dark, you just hope.
How long does it take to catch a snipe?
You start to hear sounds - like so much gobblety-gook.
Then comes this dumb sensation that you are the schnook.
It could take forever, but usually with youth
you quit hunting after someone relays the truth.
