When you have eliminated the impossible

whatever remains

however improbable

must be the truth

Improbable may be hard

to accept

but all else being equal

the truth remains

Digging ever deeper

past what cannot ever be

to find what might be

these are the remains

These remains however

hard to believe

if not impossible and what really is

must be the truth

If you have stayed with me on this National Poetry Month 30 poems for 30 days journey I appreciate it.  Some of you may have known my theme and others may have guessed it by now.  If not, it was quotes from all the various incarnations of Sherlock Holmes.  It worked out rather well and I will leave you with one last Holmes quote: “Education never ends Watson.  it is a series of lessons with the greatest for the last.”
