EASTERN HOLT COUNTY
CROW HUNTERS APPOINT
A POET LAURATE
No organization nowadays is com
plete without a poet laureate. Eng
land has one, although some folks
dent think much of his poetry, and
Nebraska two years ago created the
position of poet laureate of the state
and appointed one of the state’s best
linguistic acrobats to occupy the ex
alted position. Captain James Mc
rharlin of the Eastern Holt county
crow killers last week decided that we
should have a poet laureate and has
appointed F. O. Hazen, of Opportu
nity to the _ job. Mr. Hazen has ac
cepted the job and like Nebraska’s
poet laureate will serve without pay.
The official poem from the pen of Mr.
Hazen, entitled “Get That Cro*,” is
herewith presented to the public for
the first time, and should be memor
ized by every crow hunter:
“GET THAT CROW”
On March fifteenth, with the rise of
sun, * ,
Grab that trusty old pump-gun,
And join the mighty rush for fun:
Get That Crow.
Take shells enough, to last you thru
A full day's hunt and maybe two.
Then sight right straight, I caution
Get That Crow.
This mighty nuisance of the air
We'll banish from old Holt, so fair
Before he learns to pull our hair:
Get That Crow.
They scatter germs of vile disease,
They carry millions of mites and
They kill our chickens, eat our peas:
Get That Crow.
The critters with their Caw, Caw,
Are no respecters of our law.
Don't let them give you the Haw>
Get That Crow.
Trap them, Shoot them, Kill them
Pile them in ricks. Put them in
Pay them back in real hard knocks:
Get That Crow.
Get them in day-time, Get them at
Get them by noon or lantern light,
When ever you see one, shoot on sight:
Get That Crow.
Talless, or wingless, or white with
*j>%uuvger birds whose feathers
Just aim his way and mutter, mine:
Get That Crow.
On prairie, hill or light tree top;
At roost on ledge, or sleeping cop;
Resolve at once to make him drop:
Get That Crow.
Don’t stop for feed, or breathing spell,
Don’t try to shoot without a shell,
But go prepared to give them—Well
Get That Crow.
F. O. Hazen.
