In search of missing stuff

I seem to have spent a large chunk of this week charging round the office hunting down missing books, scalpels, calculators etc.  Which has reminded me of the Allan Ahlberg poem ‘Scissors’, which I’ve adapted here for agency use:

Scalpels don’t lose themselves,
Melt away, or explode.
Scalpels have not got
Legs of their own
To go running off up the road.

We really need those scalpels,
That’s what makes me mad.
If it was a couple of pairs
Of Creatives we’d lost,
It wouldn’t be so bad.

I don’t want to hear excuses.
Don’t anyone speak.
Just ransack this agency
Till we find them,
Or we’ll stop here… all week!
