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!)

FREE TABLE

FREE TABLE

There is a table in the Common Room

That used to be called “FREE”…

anything left there disappeared

If any had want or need.

Once i left an article there,

In a wink it was nearly gone….

My boss had to rescue it from the one

Who thought it could be his to own!

Technically–it’s no longer free—

but people remember their ways…

More than remember new-fangled rules

Don’t leave it there in malaise.
