I was in school doing my favourite hobby,
Eavesdropping in the lobby.
Listening intently to every word,
Until I suddenly heard,
...'Jack' is no more,
Said somebody quite sore.
Up the stairs, down the corridor,
I rushed an opened my class door.
Twenty pairs of eyes bore
Into me, and 19 mouths cried,
"What's happened, don't hide",
"Our principal Jackson has died!" I cried.
I was greeted by violence,
And then a whoop of joy.
And then rose a huge outcry,
"Yai! No more punishments or scolding,
Finally our joy is unfolding."
"Silence! What's this all about",
Cried our class teacher Mrs. Spout.
When I told her the news,
She jumped out of her shoes.
She gave me a hi-five,
And shouted "Oh Joy!"
"Mrs. Spout! Children! What's going on?"
Bellowed grumpy old Mr. Jackson.
"You're alive", everybody said,
And looked at my face which was red
"I'm ashamed of everyone here", he said,
"I have half a mind to have you expelled."
And that is why I tell everybody,
If you eavesdrop don't tell anybody.
For what I thought was a dead man,
Actually was something used by a tool man.

Watson replies, "They are Incredible Holmes...They are infinite..So many stars so many universes..worlds within worlds..surely in amongst all those incalculable worlds there must be life like ours and even perhaps criminals of the very kind we ourselves investigate.”
Holmes replies..."No you idiot Watson..somebody has stolen our tent"....
To be a great champion,
you have to be the best.
If you aren’t, pretened you are.
