Sheer Sleuthing Bliss

Plot out a twisting path
through the garden, we’ll need
something creative for the scavenger hunt.

A rubber ducky with buckteeth
will be the ultimate prize (just think of
the looks on the searchers’ faces when we unveil it).

Six hours of sheer sleuthing bliss
will put a beautiful cap on the day,
followed by some stiff coffee and a video replay booth

for our individual enjoyment.
Who will be represented the most
on our blooper reel? I’m gunning for Mrs. Teasdale,

but we can never be too sure.


Author: Aidan Badinger I am a poet. I write poems. Titles and subjects and subsequent readership are all part of one fragmented figment of our universe, and it's nice that we take it so seriously. Hopefully the craft remains and grows stronger for our children.
