Wild Weeds
Outhouse Saga

      It was on a Saturday a couple of years ago that I first noticed the hole by the Stone Cabin in Boggy Canyon. In fact, it wasn't there a week earlier. I wound up hiking back to the cabin the next day and there was a brand new outhouse standing directly above the hole. Since the Stone Cabin is only a mile and a half from my house, I hike by it quite often. A few months ago I noticed that the outhouse had been blown over and then, just yesterday as I write this, I noticed a rattlesnake in the three and a half foot deep hole that had been dug for the outhouse. So, at this point I have a couple questions: 1) Will someone eventually lift up the outhouse and put it back in place? 2) Will the rattlesnake escape from the hole? As they say, only time will tell!

First there was a hole and then
There was an outhouse
Standing proudly for a couple years
And then the winds blew and
Knocked it right over
Or at least that's how it appears

A snake somehow fell into the hole
And now he's kinda stuck
There must be a lesson to be learned
Or maybe it was just bad luck

If the snake is lucky
A rodent just might
Fall into the hole
Or maybe an escape tunnel
Will be dug by
An unlucky mole
