There was jello in the fingerprints detective dulllight discovered.
And where as detectives slocks and slovits
Dulllight had a better lead to follow.
"excuse me aren't you so and so?"

So he climbed into the tub wearing his underwear and overcoat,
In his brain there are file cabinets
(but I don't want to talk about that room downstairs).
Realize that since they had reported on the crime scene
Two butterflies land on their shoulders and harmonize softly in their ears
"did you think that you'd stay young forever?"
The two detectives held hands in the moonlight.
Slocks removed a fountain pen from his breast pocket,
"death to the parchment whale, the robot I am lasaile".
"the cause of gauze". "oh the cause of gauze,
Each memory has its own lap and swimmers swim laps.
Condition many require a delicate gauze.
That I will have one more opportunity
And that in that state of gauze can somehow disturb
When detective dulllight returning from the catacombs
Stabbing and subsequent poetry enterprise
This eventually became a tiresome activity
