Where For Art Thou, P?


Oh "P", Oh "P",
What's happened to you?
Are you hiding somewhere?
Are you stuffed in a shoe?

Are you under the fridge,
All alone and cold?
Did you leave in the night?
Tired of snotty hands that hold?

Are you out to sea?
Did you climb a tree?
Oh where can you be?
Our dear little "P."

Are you shoved in a drawer?
Are you under the sink?
Perhaps down the toilet
Where everything stinks?

We miss you "P".
It's just not the same.
Without you here,
This alphabet's lame.

Please do come back.
You're missed through and through.
Please fill your spot here
Between the "O" and the "Q."

That happened to us too. Looked everywhere. Pulled out the stove, the fridge, looked in the couch cushions. Eventually, I just couldn't handle keeping it for long enough to pass down the next child with the missing letter/s though.
