How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
... and the thorns, they can sting;
It’s the KBI Geocache Poetry Thing!
As you probably fear, what we have here
Is a new mental challenge, so make your head clear.
No puzzles to solve, no running around;
It’s a straightforward cache like most typically found.
It’s easy to spot, but the next step is worse.
When you web-log your find, you must put it in VERSE!
I love Geocaching. It gets me outside.
I drag friends and family ‘long for the ride.
It’s COOL navigating from satellites high!
Do I like tech-y gadgets? Well, duh, I’m a GUY!
It’s also an ex-cuse to play on the ‘Net
(Nothing rhymes with “The Web”) It’s the best hobby yet!
Plain caches, though fun, are spread hither and yon.
You find, sign, and log ‘em, and then you move on.
But mostly I’ve found that these Cachers, you see,
Display some impressive creativity!
Headscratchers, puzzles, and goose chases wild
Are among the adventures I’ve recently filed.
And sneaky-bright minds, Hawaiians to Mainers
Have hidden some VERY creative containers.
Now it’s MY turn to hide one, but Conundrum One
Was “What can I put up that hasn’t been DONE?”
So, here’s my solution! I hope that you like it:
Your post has to rhyme (or be warned, I will strike it!)
You can copy my lead, or do what works for you.
A sonnet, a Seuss, a simple Haiku.
The meter don’t matter. I’m not that insistent;
As long as the rhyming is (somewhat) consistent.
Butcher the grammar! Use a thesaurus!
Or even cram in way too many awkward syllables. Is it legal? Of caurus!
So, if you’ve got the muse, it’s time to deploy it.
You’ve been given your mission. I hope you enjoy it!
I’ve just moved the micro – an UPDATE I’m filing:
The canister’s no longer screwed to that piling.
The dudes with Weed Eaters, and mowers they’d trucked
Proved time and again why my hiding place, uh, well, it wasn’t what you’d call “ideal.”
I managed to save the old log for posterity.
For this I owe st_richardson, in sincerity,
A very big THANK YOU! Saint Rick saved me, (twice),
From having to archive my first cache hide. Nice!
The lat / longs above have been changed to reflect it.
Come claim a NEW smiley! (If you can detect it!)
You’ve done found it once? Come try it again!
(It’s your first time here? Geez, where have you been?)
The find difficulty is still “a no-brainer;”
It may (or may not) be the ‘zact same container!
He hasn’t moved far, not much more’n I can throw ‘im;
Remember, you STILL have to post with a POEM!
