A closer look and links:
Can you find at least eight additional props?
I much prefer the outside air
To sitting on a classy chair.
My passion is the great outdoors
Where it’s assumed I’m on all fours,
But sleuthing calls for many poses
As I search amongst the roses.
At times I pause; I need to think.
A pool is more than just a drink -
As I reflect and contemplate
On all the clues I’ve found of late...
A Side Blotched lizard slithers by.
A grassroots movement? Private eye!
And yes, he wears a Bowler hat,
A tailored suit and starched cravat.
Although it’s thought I give him chase,
We work together on each case.
Egads, I’m not a lizard hunter!
He, my friends, is Mervyn Bunter.
His alias when on the loose
Is Lennie, Gimpy, Newt or Bruce.
Lord Peter Wimsey, by the way.
I'm at your service, come what may.
