Gremlin on the Loose

There is a culprit
on the loose;
it plays hide and seek
with me.
I think it is a gremlin,
though much too small to see.

It hid one
of my pair of shoes
and ate a single sock,
then stole pieces of my silver set
and turned my bread
to rock.

It burned my candle
at both ends
and set my hair aflame.
I am really getting tired
of these never-ending
games.

It climbed
into my closet,
I guess to take a rest,
I cannot begin
to tell you,  oh my,
there’s such a mess.

Now that it’s time
for company,
he’s nowhere to be
seen.  I bet
that little imp will try
to blame it all on me.
