        “Once upon a time” the story starts
        then takes us on the journey of its plot
        engaging, at the best, both minds and hearts,
        discerning what is true from what is not.
        Because the tale’s a mystery, we must
        keep all our wits about us as we read,
        while wondering if we can always trust
        the narrator or clues that might mislead.
        A sudden turn of fresh events may throw
        us off the track, beginning a new course
        of episodes, adding another foe,
        yet all the while we close in on the source
        of all the mayhem, ever held in thrall
        until Sherlock at last discloses all.
