There’s a crack next to my car seat
but I don’t know where it ends.
I tried to stick my arm down there,
but it twists and then it bends.
I’m always dropping things in there,
most of the time by mistake
If you collected all the crumbs
You could easily make a cake.
It must be really deep because
I have lost so many things.
My Lego guys and juice box straws,
Pencils, balls and spider rings.
I’ve lost marbles, beads, stickers, coins
and lots of my other stuff
I’d whine about it to my mom
But, I think she’s had enough.
I wish I knew how deep it was
But, i can’t see the bottom.
I tried looking down there before
With a flashlight, last autumn.
But, alas, that didn’t work ‘cuz
I dropped the flashlight in too.
I swear I saw a big eyeball
What was I supposed to do?
I thought about enlisting help
from my bestest buddy Claire,
But if we rescued all the stuff
She’d probably make me share.
I’m sitting on buried treasure
And it’s driving me crazy.
I could ask my brother for help
But, he is much too lazy.
One day, when I am big and strong
And I have all the right tools
I will take the whole car apart
And retrieve all of my jewels.
