Truth

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!
