Jack 'n' Jill

Jack 'n' Jill
went up the hill
to fetch a pail of water.
Jack fell down
and broke his crown,
while Jill came tumbling after.

He sure as hell did!
Broke it off!  Broke it clean off!

Headless Jack will live out his days in view 
of the Kite-Eating Tree, forced to always allow
Little Jack to do his thinking, led around Speedway
by the stolid, loyal Jill.

Hee hee! Well spotted, Speedway.
Nice to see the Kite Eating Tree in all its glory. What a great place to lie in wait for unsuspecting kites.

The Kite Eating Tree is certainly "hiding in plain sight." It's the only tree in that section of the Coke Lot field and has survived a lot.
