Mr. Trebek , “What collects at the bottom of toasters?”
(OctaTimbre in syllable count)
They multiply like coat hangers,
Mold on leftovers in the frig,
Or dust bunnies under the bed.
Sometimes though they are just little
Trails that the birds end up eating
So you can’t find your way out of
An enchanted forest or a
Foggy bit of information
That you need – it is right at the
Tip of your tongue; that is ‘fine crumbs’.
Note Alex Trebek is the host of the game show ‘Jeopardy’ where you have to state
your answers in a question.
