I searched through every cupboard shelf -
The refrigerator too,
But what I looked for wasn’t there:
Oh just what should I do?
I then searched underneath the chairs:
I’d surely find it there –
But, search and search and search again:
But no, not anywhere.
I hunted through my coat pockets,
Then looked inside my car.
Perhaps you know just where I’ll find
My lovely chocolate bar.
I knew my dog was not a thief
And my cat was not, that’s true:
But then I heard the sound of feet . . . .
Oh, surely it’s not YOU?
But what is that all round your mouth?
The truth is out for sure,
For you scoffed the little treat I’d bought -
Then crept back here for more!
