Past POTM

I wrote a similar version of this poem many years ago for my daughter’s school project she needed to assemble a book of poems and was coming up short.

I was inspired to write this. By whom I dare not say.

O’ Please! Won’t Someone‒– help me find My Keys?
By David E. VinZant Sr.

O’ Please! O’ Please! Won’t Someone‒– help me find My Keys?

I did not leave them in the door. I did not drop them on the floor.

I did not leave them in the car. I did not put them in the jar.

I can not find them here or there. I can not find them anywhere.

O’ Please! O’ Please! Won’t Someone‒– help me find My Keys?

I did not lose them in the grass. I did not leave them at Mass.

I did not give them to the baby. I did not drop them in the gravy.

I can not find them here or there. I can not find them anywhere.

O’ Please! O’ Please! Won’t Someone‒– help me find My Keys?

I did not set them beside the bed. I did not leave them in the shed.

I did not put them on the table. I did not loan them to Auntie Mable.

I can not find them here or there. I can not find them anywhere.

O’ Please! O’ Please! Won’t Someone‒– help me find My Keys?

I did not lose them riding my bike. I did not drop them on my hike

I did not put them in my coat. Nor where they eaten by a goat.

I can not find them here or there. I can not find them anywhere.

O’ Please! O’ Please! Won’t Someone‒– help me find My Keys?

I did not put them in a drawer. I did not leave them at the store.

I did not lose them in the couch. I do not want to become a grouch.

I can not find them here or there. I can not find them anywhere.

O’ Please! O’ Please! Won’t Someone‒– help me find My Keys?

I did not hang them on the wall. I did not drop them in the hall.

I did not place them on the shelf. They where not stolen by the Keybler Elf.

I can not find them here or there. I can not find them anywhere.

O’ Please! O’ Please! Won’t Someone‒– help me find My Keys?

I did not put them in Grandma’s vase of pewter. I did not leave them by the computer.

I did not put them upon the desk. I will not stop nor will I rest.

I can not find them here or there. I can not find them anywhere.

O’ Please! O’ Please! Won’t Someone‒– help me find My Keys?

I did not put then in the fridge. I did not leave behind when playing Bridge.

I did not lose them in the sink. I am nearly at the brink.

I can not find them here or there. I can not find them anywhere.

O’ Please! O’ Please! Won’t Someone‒– help me find My Keys?

I did not lose them on the path. I did not have them in the bath.

I did not find them in the chair. I am about to pull out my hair.

I can not find them here or there. I can not find them anywhere.

O’ Please! O’ Please! Won’t Someone‒– help me find My Keys?

Wait! Here they are, they where in my pocket all this time.
