    Bill of the Hill

    The I-L-L Poem

    An epic poem of love, tragedy , adventure, medical pursuits and pickles.

     

    Part I: Bill – by Josiah Huckabee

    There once was a man

    Whose name was Bill

    And he lived on a hill

    He built a mill

    To keep out the chill

    But then he got ill

    So he wrote a will

    To his nephew Phill

    Then he died

     

    Part II: Bill and Jill – by John Morrison

    Before he was ill

    The man named Bill

    Married Jill

    Who made pickles dill

    When they had time to kill

    They would sit on the sill

    of the window in the mill

    Jars the would fill

    And let none of it spill

    It required such skill

    to fill

    Jars with pickles dill

    Their life was a thrill

    Then Bill became ill

    And Jill gave him a pill

    But it didn’t help.

     

    Part III: Phil and Jill – by Emma Huckabee

    After poor Bill was ill (and died)

    His nephew Phil

    Inherited the mill

    as said in the will

    Now the mill

    That Bill built to keep out the chill

    Let in the chill (due to lack of repair)

    “I need money to fix it,” thought Phil

    So Phil reopened the mill

    and sold pickles dill

    what was left still

    But when Phil

    Needed more pickles, he asked Jill

    Jill had skill in making pickles dill

    Not so with Phil

    he had no skill

    But alas for Jill

    of sorrow, she had had her fill

    “Bill! My poor Bill!”

    “How can I make pickles dill without Bill?”

    Jill would not–could not make pickles dill

    on the sill without her Bill

    Then things started going downhill

    Phil couldn’t make pickles dill because of the chill

    His hands were so cold they made him spill

    Poor Phil tried and tried though he had no skill,

    Until

    They went bankrupt.

    @bill-of-the-hill What a tragic story of a true legend. The origin (and end) of Bill of the Hill shall go down in infamy among classic fables and pickle-centered tragedies alike.

    RIP Bill, Alive-Dead
