Mr Spock and the Lost Left Sock

Fiddly, Fiddly Mr Spock

Up and down the road he ran

Looking for his lost left sock

Knitted by his dear old Nan


It has tassels and conker size knots

Is a bit smelly and very, very old

It is green with pink and yellow spots

And ventilation holes, so I’m told


Could Captain Kirk have hidden it?

Or Scotty used it to gain warp factor speed?

Or Bones made it into liquid chemicals

To inject into the Klingons spleen?


“I’ve found it, I’ve found it!”

Comes Mr Spock’s cry

Lieutenant Uhura has used it

To make cheese and onion pie


Mr Spock’s belly rumbles

As he spies the culinary delight

But Chekov quickly snatches it

And tucks in with 3 or 4 bites


Mr Spock is speechless

And finds it hard to believe

So he puts his thumb into his mouth

And sobs on Zulu’s sleeve


Just another day on the Starship Second Prize

Tomorrow’s episode promises more

As they continue on their great commission

To boldly go where no man has gone before
