Lost keys turn to little wind-chimes, 
ballpoint pens become their flutes, 
Lost gloves find new lives as sweaters, 
Lose some thimbles? Now they’re boots! 
So if anything goes missing, 
From your home, yard, or caboose, 
Know the Scallywags have found it, 
And have put it to good use!

Oh, the Scallywags are sneaky, When it comes to things they need, But they only take these items, For good use; not out of greed. So the left socks that go missing, From the wash (as is the norm), Are re-knit for toques and mittens, To keep these guys nice and warm.
