A tutorial on double-bagging the paper

Editor, the Advocate:
Done right - good!
Done wrong - useless!
Those of us who live in the suburbs customarily have discovered/when our daily paper comes double-bagged/
the carriers of it think we will get rain./
But such double-bagging is a joke,/ because I must say holy smoke,/
Instead of putting the closed ends/
on opposite sides, they put them together,/
so the open ends will get the wet weather./
Such double-bagging only makes a double-thick container./
Maybe all this I should say/
in a more easily understandable way:/
"Put the rolled up paper in a bag/
and put the open end of that bag/
down into another bag, the same./
Then look at it and you will have discovered/
that both ends of the paper are covered,/
and you will have out-witted the rain."/
Note: This typewriter I am using is 77 years old. It was my high school graduation present when I was age 16.
