 Case Of The Missing Bifocals

There, right there was last we saw
Upon taking from our sock draw
Glasses, my eyes needed today
Now gone they've seem to slip away

How could have they just disappeared
Question I asked myself in fear
Inside my home this mystery
Would need detective work you see

We combed each room with fine tooth pick
Looking for clues we would admit
Careless just leaving them right there
Upon dresser no glasses bared

We searched both high and low for them
No suspects here to apprehend
A crime unreal, how could one steal
The specs that gave us sex appeal

We led search party under the bed
Hitting the frame above our head
Each nook and cranny of every room
Time soon would past and spell their doom

Cried out to them seeking our loss
The price we payed too high a cost
To just give up or just give in
To call my doctor for new prescription

No funny papers or news we'd read
Book of poems no clues to lead
What could have happened to them we need
Our loss today would mean no reads

Then like magic they just appeared
In hands of one I hold so dear
Just shy of two granddaughter sweet
Would come to give my missing peeps

No doubt guilty as charged you see
What once was mine was now clearly
On tiny face worn upside down
With fingerprints all hers around

The case now solved, now what to do
With her that smiles and loves me too
Should we press charges or just take hold
Of one who borrowed and my heart stole
