I ask a cricket



  • I ask a cricket for directions
  • The cricket replied, chirp, chirp in a loud stern voice
  • Sorry oh boy, I replied, I do not understand chirp
  • Another cricket tried to help in a different tone
  • Neither of the two could I understand.
  • Finally yonder I saw the farmer so I go to him and ask directions
  • The farmer, I understood, kinda
  • Down the road to the old Jones homestead, left three miles
  • To the old Rogers homestead, right four miles by the old oak tree.
  • As I walked away I began to wonder if they even knew where they are.
