    Default I WENT ON A TREASURE HUNT=UPDATED AND FINAL VERSION

    I WENT ON A TREASURE HUNT
    by: themare

    I went on a Treasure Hunt
    To search for missing gems
    Each time I came upon a spot
    The search abruptly ends!
    I started in Rickets Glen State Park
    In the lovely state of Penn
    When I arrived at the Dragonfly tree
    I was too late by then!
    Next I flew to Iowa State
    To search for the lowly Snail
    Hiked to Lake Anita State Park
    And searched to no avail
    In deep frustration again I flew
    To New Mexico to find the Bee
    When I got to Santa Rosa State Park
    A Trooper's wife had outwitted me!
    Flew back to my homestate of New York
    Certain where the Grasshopper will be
    Went to use the Ladies Room
    And was foiled again by Packimocity!
    Frustrated now I hopped in my car
    Couldn't afford to fly
    Went to North Carolina State
    In search of the Butterfly
    Lo and behold the token was gone
    So I charged a ticket to fly
    Landed in Oklahoma's State Park
    To look for the Firefly
    Once again someone was there before me
    And found the elusive prize
    Back down South I went once again
    To make the Ladybug mine
    Oh, woe is me!
    The Ladybug's gone
    I can't believe my luck!
    Are all those Fairies laughing at me?
    Because I keep getting stuck?
    This time I think I'll meet my goal
    And drive to Arkansas
    "The Caterpillar's mine,"I say with a grin
    And find an empty hole!
    With heavy heart and aching feet
    I once more hit the sky
    Determined to catch the Hummingbird
    In the beautiful state of WY
    Up to Emily's Pond I trudge
    Cursing my blistered feet
    When I reached in that big dead tree
    What did my fingers meet?
    NOTHING!!!!
    Oh me, Oh my, what can I do?
    Only three Creatures to see
    Those darn fairies are driving me mad
    And they're pointing their fingers at me!
    They seem to be sharing a secret together
    As they sit there smirking at me.
    I think they know that I've lost my mind
    And for that, they're exploding with glee!
    I stay in the west to look for the Ant
    I think that I have the clues
    When I get to UT and look in the tree
    Once again I'm hit with the blues.
    On to the Badlands where the Beetle must be
    Now I'm too broke to fly
    When I get to the park, the gem has been found
    I look to the sky and scream, "WHY?"
    Why can't I find one silly old gem?
    I REALLY want one so bad!
    I hear those fairies whispering to me
    And I think that I'm going mad!
    After a week I head for the east
    I had to hitch some rides
    For West Virginia's a long way away
    And I ran out of money besides
    I know the Spider's in Prickets Fort
    First I'll go to the ATM
    Then I race to the spot and reach in the tree
    And there my journey ends.
    Someone got there before me again
    And left me with nothing to find
    I'm out of money, my feet hurt so bad
    And I already lost my mind!
    The only gem left
    Is the beautiful Pook
    The clues are in the tome
    I'll let someone else look in that last tree
    And I'll cheer them from my home
    My fire's lit, my feet are wrapped
    I'm snuggled in my chair
    "A Treasures Trove" is in my lap
    And I'm not moving from there!
    I was always too late or in the wrong spot
    I never quite got there in time
    12 lucky people were there before me
    The treasures will never be mine
    For not everyone can find these gems
    That's the nature of this game
    But Michael Stadther got us all to read
    And for some that thrill is the same
    Because reading the book with your kids at night
    Snuggled close in the nice "birch grove"
    Laughing at faeries and cheering for Zack
    Is the point of "A Treasure's Trove"
