The Solutionist

And so the piper played his pipe,
While all the rats did chase the tones,
As people watched, the fruits were ripe,
On trees that housed those swarms of drones
Did chase the tones, and end as bones…

And as the creatures headlong fell
To icy waters, currents cold
The men at work would dig the well
Into which the cat dropped, brave and bold
Currents cold and fears untold…

And so the solutionist posed his query,
Answer this and you will know,
The question is the one to bury,
Ask it now. Unlike before
You will know,and so much more…
