They journeyed along

In a sand boat

With a sock for a sail

Searching for a lock,

A lock for the key

The one discovered recently

On a journey that prequels this one,

A tale for another day.

They followed the water trail

To the sign that read: Five o three

They knew what it meant immediately

So they waited

And waited patiently,

Soon after the clock struck

The sun shone beautifully

Through the trees a many

To reveal a door

A door with a locked lock,

They were in luck

As they floated towards their fate

A holler was sounded

It echoed

It reverberated off the water

Causing ripples in its wake

They realised the journey would need to pause

For dinner was ready

(Spaghetti and meatballs)

They buried the key in the sand boat

For safekeeping

And so it will stay

Until another day

When the tale evolves

Into a sequel
