A poem about those pesky creatures who leave us wondering.
They struck the drawer again last night
and took one sock, just like before.
They got into my room despite
the locked up windows and barred door.

I wonder why they take just one
each time they visit in the dark.
Must some official task be done,
or do they do it on a lark?

They must have feet the size of mine,
but who knows whether two or more.
All I know is eight or nine
have disappeared from my sock drawer.

Last night, what really wasn't fair
was which specific sock they stole.
They took the good one from a pair
and left the one that has a hole.
