Ode to Phil (rhyming poem form competition)

The ode to Phil

There once was a man named Phil

Who loved the star wars sequels

The sight of a lightsaber

Was quite the life saver

In the life of the man named Phil

Soon old Phil will walk the hill country

To find that roosting gobblers tree

So when he aims fire

The situations is not as dire

As the fate that wheatstash met thee

The point is that Phil

The engineer of hammer and drill

Will always be remembered

For the laughs that are stirred

When he plays Yani’s voice at will

Good yarns and hunting stories

Benny can spin a yarn and about hunting near and far. He has even done it from a car. Bucks, birds, bears and even hares. While I listen from across the globe about adventures he strode. He often talks about my home maybe because he is as big as a nome. Hobbiton is where I live and New Zealand I am happy to give. Tahr chamios, Red and Sika, all make for a good meat eater. With advice from hunting collective, you will forever be effective. #waldoandersen #vortexbinos
