Known references to this set (listed below slide images)
Slide 1
One stout, sturdy fellow was making the holes / While two or three others were placing the poles
Slide 2
However, at last he comes up to the hole / Made ready to take in another long pole
Slide 3
And then the contents of the can he did pour -- / It might be a gallon or so -- perhaps more
Slide 4
And presently up comes another long pole / Prepared to be sent with force into the hole
Slide 5
And this is the plight which they found themselves in / They're deluged with mud from the crown to the chin
