Poem: Secret To a Set Of Keys (Not Mine!)

Updated on February 17, 2013

Secrets!

Source

The Z-Key

Source

Intro:

I have a secret to a set of keys,
But it definitely doesn't belong to me.
The mysterious one who owns these keys,
Is pretty special person, indeed!

You see, these keys are not just keys.
They have special functions, you see.
That man who owns these license free,
Cannot do much without these keys.

The M-Key

Source

The L-Key

Source

The key with Letter M on it: Could be for him, BUT....

We will call it the M-Key,
It's for his Cryptic Mind, you see.
If you don't lock it on the tee,
His mind will take off and flee!

And what about that baffling X-Key?
Could it be for the box en famille?
Nah, X-natural is what is he!
Nothing make sense with him, you see!

Then there is The Lovely L-Key,
I like to pretend that it's for ME!
But it actually belongs to his love and legatee,
Wherever that unfathomable person might be!

You wonder what is this for, this Zee,
But, of course, it's for his Zeal, you see!
The Z-Key is ever so fascinating to a degree,
Without it he lacks the desire to even party.

Now You see the state of this poor man's plea,
He is totally a Mad Man If he ever looses his set of keys!
Brace yourselves from his storm in a cup of tea,
You never want to be around when he lets out his fury!

Other then that, he is all happy and fluffy!

Disclaimer: the keys are all real, as real as can be. But the poem is fictional.... No, resemblance to any character in hubpages at all! :))

      You forgot the B key,

      that one belongs to thee,

      for a brain so full of verse

      and writings none can curse.

      Great Job! Where do you come up with these things? Amazing!

      This was a real delight. Love that kitten pic. You reminded me of a gold key in the shape of your L key which I found one time swimming in a river. Took it home and guess what? It fit the lock of one of my drawers in my desk. lol

      Uniquely expressed poetry here LaThing, I like the whole keys theme, it shows true creativity by you being unleashed onto the page here nice!

      I always use to play with my fathers keys as a child, and my younger cousins now do it with my uncles keys, and so yup I love the concept here, it flows really smooth with the poetic words, you definitely have a winner here. Bravo!

      Thumbs up! and out indeed.
