Another poem from the book MOXIE DAY and Family!

Where's my Captain Cootie first edition comic book?
I've looked in every single place that's sensible to look.
I keep the comic hidden in the dresser with my socks,
sealed inside an acid-free, airtight, cardboard box.
That comic never has been touched or seen the light of day.
Whoever took my comic book is gonna hafta pay.
I'll peek into my sister's room; she always takes my stuff.
But this is where I draw the line and say enough's enough.

I hope that what I'm seeing's an illusion or mirage,
My sister cut The Captain out to use in her collage!
