Grandpa Si and Ben


Psalms 127:3 (NLT) New Living Translation: Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him.



Grandpa Si said, 'Ben, get me some twine and a little limb
An' we'll make us a fishin' pole to catch brim.
In no time at 'll he'd rigged a hook from a safety pin;
Yes sir, we're goin' fishin' jus' us men.
Now grandpa he don't like bait that's store bought,
So we dug us some worms and used crickets we'd caught.
Awww, Grandpa sighs as he shows me how to cast,
'Now watch real close Ben, we might catch us a bass.'
'LOOK BEN! THERE'S A CATFISH SWIMMING
'LONG THE SHORE! WHY I BET HE'S
AT LEAST A FOOT OR MORE. HURRY UP
AND DO WHAT I TELL YA TO DO
TAKE OFF YOUR SOCKS AND SHOES AN'
SNEAK UP ON THAT OL' CATFISH
SHOW 'UM WHO'S WHO!'
Just as I dangled my line in front of his nose
I felt somethin' cold and slimy slither over my toes.
'WOW! WATCH 'IM GO!'
Grandpa looked just in time to see that ol' catfish
Draggin' me, 'GIVE IT UP MR. CATFISH
YOU'RE ALL MINE!' Whew! This fishin's
Quite an ordeal;
'GRANDPA! GET THE SKILLET OUT HERE
COMES OUR MEAL.'
What a great example grandpa set for me today,
And when I grow up to be a grandpa,
I'm gonna take my grandchildren out to play.
