There once was a lady so thin
she wanted to solve a crime
so she set at a Bar, Lounge, Inn,
only couldn't find her lime,

Try hard as she would - to remember
only made her all the more slender,
so much so - she slipped through her
straw an fell in...

Now while there - she tried to compare
her lime - now found - from her olive,
only to have swallowed her ice cube in there,
it floated her above an over her glass alive,

Now on her chair it all didn't matter
so she ordered another,
this time without a lime - an became fatter
wow, when asked to pay for this one an that other

Why she said; didn't you hear "Crime Doesn't pay"
as she melted away - Olay! >:D
