So you found an empty book, you think.
But it could be written in invisible ink…
Or the words are so small that you can’t even read
Without the specialized glasses you need.
And what would be written inside such a book
That the people who wrote it don’t want you to look?
It must be important – a really big secret,
For the authors to go to such trouble to keep it.
It could be directions to the fanciest ball,
Ever thrown in the city, or ever at all,
And the only way to get in is to whisper the phrases,
That were written and hidden somewhere in the pages.
Or it could be a map to a park filled with rides,
And you’d find that there aren’t any lines once inside.
Or maybe a lesson that teaches you Kloop,
A language spoken in whispers by the people of Floop.
Or blueprints to build a small rocket ship.
A recipe for cookies with the chocolatest chips.
A picture of Bigfoot and Abe Lincoln together.
A ten-year advance schedule of Washington’s weather.
All these things can be found if you know how to look,
Between the two covers of an old empty book.
