A much loved Civet has gone missing ! Please check your gardens, your sheds and under your beds.
$100 reward has been offered, that’s a bucket load of Kip !
(860,000 to be precise).
So we searched, not for the money you understand but for the small child crying themselves to sleep at night without their beloved civet.
We asked these chickens and this fish. No, they hadn’t seen him
We searched under every leaf and behind every flower.
We paused briefly for a strangely refreshing plate of toast.
And admired a Japanese lady contemplating a very large jackfruit,
Right next to what appeared to be a box for French letters ?
This lion and tiger didn’t know, nor did this very young monk.
This monkey went straight to the top and asked Lord Buddha.
But even the omniscient one was stumped.
Please, all of you, go outside, raise your arms horizontally, and make a noise like a civet in heat.
