Jimmy Hoffa Found at Last


By Elton Camp


Though well-known by name and face

The union leader vanished without a trace


Reports claimed he was here, then there

Authorities have looked about everywhere


“If you will thoroughly look around,

Under the stadium he will be found.”


“Very soon after he was dead,

We buried him under a shed.”


“Even though it was a little rude,

We ground him up into dog food.”


Turns out his killers took a delight

In hiding Jimmy Hoffa in plain sight


In a museum his skeleton on display

But a deceptive phrase on it did say


“A Neanderthal Man is hanging here.

Please don’t touch or come too near.”


A cave man he resembled so much

For decades he easily passed as such
