Poems That Tickle My Feet I ---The Great Coon Hunt

Updated on October 29, 2011

The Great Coon Hunt - By Pat Gillem

Gil and Uncle Larry were coon hunters.

It was plain to see.

While they were hunting coon,

They were as happy as can be.

So they went to Farmer Brown,

To ask permission to hunt his place.

They didn’t like to trespass,

So they asked him face to face.

By all means he said,

I will gladly let you go.

But what he forgot to tell them,

Was to watch out for his Brahma bull.

Now Blue Bell was a Bluetick Hound,

With a voice as pretty as could be.

There was nothing more heavenly

Than when she yelled at a coon up a tree.

We climbed a couple of fences,

And sat down on a log.

We listened to the music,

Coming from that bluetick dog.

Suddenly that log moved,

And threw us in the air with a jump.

What we didn’t know is that

We were sitting on a Brahma’s hump!

We laid there on the ground

Trying to gather our wit,

While the bull stood there pawing the ground,

His fiery eyes were lit!

Hey, that bull’s mad at us I yelled,

And we started to run,

But that bull was faster than a bullet,

Shot from a shiny gun!

He hit us both with the tips of his horns,

And we flew into the air.

He hit us so hard and we went so high,

We could see the county fair!

And while we were flying through the air,

Uncle Larry looked at me with a smile,

Well Gil he said, I guess this qualifies us

For frequent flyer miles.

We hit the ground a runnin’,

Right past old Farmer Brown.

Where are you boys heading,

And Gil yelled, We’re going back to town!

Farmer brown looked all puzzled,

And yelled, What about poor Blue Bell?

And without breaking stride, Uncle Larry yelled back,

Send her through the mail!

      Hi Sam.azgor

      Thank you so much, for your comment. I haven't been working on my poetry lately because, I am also a cartoonist. I have been putting a lot of energy in that bit of fun. :)

      Thank you jami. I have always liked to make people laugh, and contrary to popular belief, it is possible to do it without being dirty.

      Thanks for your comment. Uncle Larry is actually a friend of mine that used to work with me. I was always teasing him and then started writing fictitious poems about him and sometimes included myself. He is now retired but still loves the poems and reads them to his grandchildren.

      Loved it. I could very clearly see you and Uncle Larry getting moved by the bull and running. Thanks for sharing.
