Favorite Quote:
"To give anything less than your best is to sacrafice the gift." -Steve Prefontaine

Who done it? They asked
Where have they all gone? They asked
We should hold a meeting. They stated
We will search the homesteads! They exclaimed

Crushed skulls

Slit thoughts

5 Drum Creek

11 Apple Orchard

1 Well

2 Missing Travelers

1 child

100,000 dollars

12 bullet holes
12 arrests for “bad repute”

3 hammers

2 years

Hidden in four elements

Many were to lament

Spsh wish woo
The Benders knew what they had to do
With three days to shoo
Into the stormy blue
