A dVerse Lost Gets Kinda Tossed!

Today the cat has a few dVerse questions for you. I may end up confusing a few. But it has to be done because confusing people can be such fun. It also is not hard to do. At least not at my zoo.

So there is a box,
That could even have socks.
It is called lost and found.
I bet you've seen one around.

Does it live up to its name?
That is quite the claim.
I guess we shall have to see,
With a little lost and found spree.

If it has been found,
And no longer around,
Why would it be in the box,
After they got their socks?

If it was thrown away,
But stuck in the box one day,
Then it is not really lost, right?
It just adds to the box height.

What if it is never found,
Whether by person or hound?
Then it would only be lost,
The found part would be tossed.

Making it a lost box,
With no good locks.
Or a lost and lost box,
For those long lost talks.

What if the lost and found box is lost?
Like in the trash it was tossed.
Where do you put the lost lost and found?
Bury a big hole in the ground?

Maybe create a new and improved one.
Could create one that's more fun.
A take me now box.
Might work for a sly fox.

What if nothing is in lost and found?
Can lost or found even make a sound?
Would it then be just a plain box?
Am I getting some head cocks?

Has the answer been lost or found,
Too any questions oh so profound?
Do I think too much at my zoo?
I will leave that up to you.

So a little dVerse lost and found just popped in and I went with it at my bin. Any thoughts come to pass? I know, I am just a confusing little rhyming ass.

Enjoy your winter, smash a printer.

  4. When you hear over a loud speaker
    That a kid is lost by a seeker
    Why don't they look in the box
    He could be in there with the socks

    1. Not sure we would know
      Unless it was found on the go

  6. You should know in dVerse
    There's a whole universe
    Full of things which are lost;
    Including the tossed box!

  7. The Lost and Found box at the elementary school could clothe whole nations. And yet we have four or five pairs of gloves that are now single (divorce amongst gloves is common at our place).

  8. first a box is never a box
    its all in how one looks at it,
    but should a box that is not a box
    be labeled the lost and found box and should said
    box that is not a box
    be labeled the lost and found box be lost, unfound
    or not seen laying around the that box is surely
    lost but how long can one be list before found by someone
    and the while lost to some are found by others
    talk about paradox...and at this point
    everyone has forgotten about the socks
    because the dryer eats enough of them to choke
    a horse---of course, someone will call Peta now,
    but there was no unfair treatment of animals
    in the making of this comment

    1. Making my head hurt now
      So a box isn't a box, is it a cow?
      They can regurgitate their own food and eat it twice
      So what was lost inside is found, maybe not nice
      So a lost box inside a cow can be a lost box
      Only to be a found box by a fox
      The horse just gives the cow a kick
      And the lost and found box is found some slick

      Delete
  9. Box nicely labeled Lost and Found
    Not something to shout about town
    Wallets would invariably
    Be ones left empty
    Items would not normally be that sound

  10. We have a lost and found box where I work
    The things in there would make one smirk

  11. I could never understand why one sock gets lost. Many years ago when my husband was alive and also my 2 sons were living at home I had bags of odd socks........could never find the other ones. Loved the verse another day cheered up coming here.

      Or the cat or dog eats them up

  12. My son's stuff landed in the lost and found often as a boy. Usually it was his jacket, hats, and clothes--rarely a toy. Mostly they stayed in the lost part of the box, unless they are now being worn by a fox.

    A lost and found box
    full of alarm clocks

  25. When we're looking for socks around our gathering
    it's a cat and not a kind of foot covering.
    Sometimes he does get lost,
    but it's a better cost
    since he can find his own way home
    unlike that foot sock that can't alone roam.
    ha.

  32. Some things are lost and some are found
    but, are they ever found in the lost and found
    wonder what treasures would be in that box
    and I'm not talking about someone's dirty socks
    do the things in the box get passed around
    could lost items be found by a blood hound

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Sure a blood hound would find
      Or find a good behind
      And give it a sniff
      Then after a whiff
      Find the lost and found
      Then bury it in the ground

      Delete
  33. Gosh, I never thought of this before
    about a lost and found box
    I do know at the end of school years
    that box was always filled to the top.

    No one seemed to claim their stuff
    after being left in that place
    makes you wonder where it all came from
    perhaps outer space?

    (only you could think of rhyming something like this :)
