But Hogarth had another idea. At first, the farmers would not hear of it, least of all his own father. But at last they agreed. Yes they would give Hogarth’s idea a trial. And if it failed, they would call in the Army.

What do you think Hogarth’s plan is?

Here is Mr Smith’s first attempt.

Rusted and huge
Hearing, searching, glowing
Trapped under tons of farmers earth

Does it fit the rules? Add yours here.
