The Disappearing Roll

Wonderful Magic

At last I look and look again but where or where did it go

I knew it was there what seemed an hour ago

I have been caught off guard and my pants all tangled my body in a stooper

I can not move because I am helpless and in need

I call out your name

Can you do me a big favor

Can you come please

For we have extra rolls kept in a kitchen closet

Every time I see a roll go low I get another

But beknown to me

The roll vanishes right before my eyes

When I reach over I am in such a compromising position

No loss for words as I can loudly exclaim

Who is to blame ?

Is there no greater shame ?

I am convinced this is a mystery that can't be solved

Because no matter who I ask no one is at fault

They say firmly

It was not me

I didn't go

Honest it had to be you

That took the last piece and never got a replacement roll

I sit and think as I wait

I am almost certain I did not take

So we leave it up to magic and who will be the next person

Who sits on the hot seat and tries to solve

One of the greatest diaappearing acts of the world or at least one of the strangest spots to be caught

Hands free and butt naked

Yes I have been there now I'm glad it's you not me
