I soundly slept, but when I rose,
my papers showed disheveled prose.
At once I knew the imp had been
again among the realms of men...

  1. Minimum ward to get by on (6)
  2. To celebrate their love of geometric puzzles, the friends had a tangy... (7)
  3. Sasquatch rumps are soft but years are the softest (4)
  4. When his son gets on his nerve, shot sad rink from Moe’s (5)
  5. Unfinished rotunda is still lace (7)
  6. Because of the medicine, my turtle's sealed! (7)
  7. I always seal sin the supermarket, checking for nuts (6)

Now clues are solved, alas, I fear
the fiend has fled to god knows where.
Consult the runes, unearth the text
and find out where he’s heading next...
