Super Spy


If you could be a super spy
What gadgets would you choose?
I think I’d want some x-ray eyes
And leave-no-footprint shoes.

And how ‘bout an exploding pen
That leaves invisible notes?
Or a tiny-micro-mini sub
To dive b’low enemy boats.

I’d make myself a rocket pack
And blast through city sewers
With find-the-right-way goggles on
To pick out trick detours.

I’d have a smokescreen in my coat
Inside a little can
That I could use to make escapes
That weren’t in my plan.

Yep, if I were a super spy,
I’d be a great one, mister!
For now, I’d settle for some tips
‘Bout spying on my sister.

    Love this poem and all the others, but the best part is that others are starting to participate in the writing, so makes it very fun. Since I had an older sister and always wanted to be a detective, I can relate to this one very much. Thanks Ben!
