Sherlock Holmes to Watson

Today napowrimo prompt is to write a Poemeleon. A poem in the voice of someone else. So today I have written as Sherlock Holmes


There is nothing like first-hand evidence

My dear Watson are you listening at all?

This letter is not a red herring

Have you read it at all?


Have you eliminated all other factors?

And the one that is left is the truth

You see but you don’t really observe

So look again Dr Watson, and discover


We must listen to each of their stories

For everything has been done before.

The world is full of obvious things

Come Watson the game is afoot.
