Who Done It?


While mulling by the lake

spotted an empty canoe

and a soloing shoe

was it foul play

or fowl play?

Commiserating birds

with very few words

not takers of chance

diverted their glance.

Ah! But the hen saw it all

with no one to call!

Fled back to the farm

and safe in the barn

cackled a telltale song

 but the culprit long gone.
