A Kitchen Mystery

May 28, 2008
By Leslie Chan, Palatine, IL

Aromas linger around the room,
But evidence is clearly missing--
Nonexistent are the sweet treats here;
Gone are the morsels loved so dear.
Was it lost amid deep reminiscing?
Or swept up by a simple broom?
Perhaps a child was being surly
And took a small snack prematurely.
In any case, the verdict is clear;
The cat leaves slowly with a grumble--
For that's the way the cookie crumbles.
