Mail Pouch Barns


I’m sure that everyone
Enjoys barns of every sort
Well, I have to tell you, folks
I have a different type to report

It’s called a Mail Pouch Barn
And was constructed long ago
To advertise tobacco pouches
Where smokers longed to go

They were quite amazing
In style they were unique
Ah yes, you still can find them
And today they’re quite a treat

Old barns are always charming
No matter how tattered and worn
Because of their vast necessity like
Housing animals when they were born

I just love the smell inside barns
Hay so pungent and dusty
If animals could talk they’d give us
Tremendous barn-type history!
