Episode 5 The story so far. . . This is detailed in episodes 1 thru 4.
So far the Chief had been onside. Our quest to find the middle Had meant the team had grown By thirty three percent, Little Luck being The third member of the team. As the Chief had pointed out On numerous occasions, He wasn't seeing A thirty three percent Increase in results! They say the best laid plans Of mice and men. . . Well it seems to me That "they", whoever "they" are Should be considered to be "know alls", And who has ever seen a mouse Carrying out it's plan? I've seen plenty of mice Being carried out in traps. Better planning my little friends, Better planning. And an Increased effort Towards self sufficiency. The plan to which only I was privy, It being my secret plan. Had been to research any Previous investigations Into the whereabout Of the elusive middle. Twenty 2 Eight the book store Was the chosen location In which to conduct, - Not in any musical sense You understand, (There being no music department in our branch). It was the chosen location For my research, As it boasted an extensive Criminology section. The reason being most Criminals in this town Were usually under arrest. The Underworld not being Connected in anyway With the local intelligentsia. My sojourn had however Been a wasteful exercise, Apart from the physicals In getting there, As the section had been closed And pulped to make mail bag. A bit ironic really. Back at base, It was time for a rethink. I asked Little Luck for a refill, He let go of my chair And I suffered a bit of a over spill. My hand hit the button Which triggered a fire drill, And Little luck banged his head On the window still. That's why we are visiting The Hospital. To be continued . . . (C) 2018 Christopher Thompson.
