Tell me about that thing you found
just lying on the shore
Tell me about its shape and colour
and if you’ve seen one before
It’s awfully shiny
as you look at it under the sun
it’s turning the sunbeams to colour
now isn’t that lots of fun!
its connected to a series of metallic links
very small to see
did someone wear it round their necks
it’s hard not to agree.
So you take the item to lost property
where its bagged and labelled and stored
with a hope it’s owner comes to get it
and it returns to where it was before
