I wish I had a nickel for each nickel I have dropped.
They always vanish underground before they can be stopped.
I know that once I’ve lost them I can never get them back,
For those sewer holes are deep and cold and black.
I wonder what’s beneath those holes, with bars of iron capped,
Linked everywhere by sewer systems none have ever mapped.
I think there may be cities built from things drawn through those holes,
Inhabited by troglodytes and trolls.
Monsters of the underworld, they prey on humankind,
Inducing human clumsiness with powers of the mind.
Attracting bits of metal by their fell psionic arts,
With avarice and evil in their hearts.
Well, I for one have had enough of sewer-dwelling thieves.
So now I roam the gutters and I seal each one with leaves.
I’ve organized some elves who I discovered in the wood.
We’ll find the grates and clog them up but good!
With all my little elven friends, the effort’s going fine,
Between their leaves and branches and my chewing gum and twine.
So when you cross some mud and not a sewer cold and dank,
You’ll know you’ve got my elves and me to thank!
