OUR FORMER DETECTIVE

OUR FORMER DETECTIVE

A woman came in to look

for her specially-marked book…

She’d put it down

Somewhere around,

By somebody else was it took?

In court offices she was known

As “detective”, reputation grown

Over time

‘Csuae she would find

Anything with enough time sown.

I hope her confession is true,

Because books around here have two…

Legs and walk

Off in the dark,

Whether marked…or new!

(I didn’t do it—-hones—not this time!)
