Sally’s Treasure

Sally McPhee’s a collector of keys.

She keeps them concealed in a drawer.

Some she has found just lying around.

But several she stole from next door.

 

She has keys that fit windows

and keys for the shed.

She’s got keys for a diary

she hasn’t yet read.

 

She has keys for a money box

owned by her brother.

And keys for the Volvo,

misplaced by her mother.

 

She has keys for a tool box,

her father’s great treasure.

To see him in search mode

gives Sally such pleasure.

 

She has keys that are ancient

and keys that are new.

Well, people are careless,

that’s Miss Sally’s view.

 

Sally McPhee’s a collector of keys.

She keeps them concealed in a drawer.

Her intention is clear.

That year after year,

she’s  going to collect hundreds more.
