    “Dents” By Charlotte Parker

    A hydro flask is like a person.
    It can start off new, clean,
    The perfect shape.
    But, if you drop it,
    BANG!
    It will dent.
    And sometimes, those dents,
    Are irreversible.
    A person can dent too.
    You can try to fill a dent,
    But it will never be the same.
    So think, before you drop your hydro flask.
    Because if it dents,
    It’s permanent.

    There once was a hiker from Marblehead
    Who got lost somewhere near Mount Galehead
    Without a HikeSafe card
    Fish and Game came down hard
    And now VFTT has a thread.

    Went hiking with my dog
    Hurt my back while clearing a log
    Lost a boot when it was stuck in a bog
    Reached treeline and was blinded in the fog
    Cleared my eyes to see hikers mooning the Cog

    Awesome! Thanks for the laughs guys.
    Here is my not-as-amusing add:

    Hiking is my addiction
    Mountains are the high
    Mother Nature is my dealer
    Terra Firma and the sky

    Everytime I climb a peak
    I know that I will take a leak
    I quickly hide behind a tree
    And hope that no one can see

    A hiker set out to climb Lincoln
    It's possible he had been drinkin'
    He went up like a goat
    But got lost on the Throat
    As the internet pondered his thinkin'

    A boy climbed a mountain and sat on the top
    The view made him cry and almost stopped his heart
    He went back home and tried to move on
    But alas, went back to climbing mountains
    and now he can't stop.

    Here I sit, broken hearted
    Dug my hole, and only farted

    (updated from the old one first seen on a campground stall decades ago...)
