    This is a humorous poem. It tells us how Benjamin Jones won the swimming competition, even though he was not a good swimmer. Benjamin Jones told his wife that he would compete in the free-for-all swimming competition on the fourth of July. He was sure to win the competition if he tried. His wife was not enthusiastic about it. She thought it was a foolish decision because Benjamin had not gone swimming for years. She was sure that he would be the last because the other competitors would swim faster than him. Then she would be ashamed of his failure. On the day of the competition, a group of swimmers lined up at the starting line.
