Text and Images from Lumberjack Mack
Not so long ago, in a village very close to here.
Was a forest filled with birds, raccoon, and deer.
Now the hero of our story is Lumberjack Mack
A burly woodsman who piles firewood by the stack.
Now old man winter blew in, it was a very cold breeze.
“If I don’t do something,” Mack declared “I swear I’ll Freeze!”
So he grabbed his axe. ONE swing, TWO swings, and Three!
Down fell one mighty tree!
