One sun-shining day in London,
Twelve people attended a party.
They didn't know who was coming,
But they hoped the time would be hearty.
Four husbands and wives were attending,
Each one of two boys and two girls;
The total attendees was fourteen,
Including the maid and butler.
Six rooms and the roof were the places,
One poolroom, two kitchen, three dining;
The library, the lounge, and the hall,
Which led to the ballroom quite shining.
From the ballroom it wrapped right around,
The house was a truly great circle;
The house was a diamond and round,
Free fun for the girl who liked purple.
The woman in green was a lizard,
The man in red was a bear;
The girl in white a chameleon,
The boy in blue on a dare.
Then when the clock struck midnight,
An hour for each of them there;
Then a scream was heard in the poolroom,
A splash cut the silence in air.
Four of them played in the lounge,
Two boys and their curious dads;
Each of them were their each alibi;
They assumed for each of the lads.
The ballroom was really quite active,
For five were in there on the floor;
Ms. Blue and Ms. White and Ms. Green;
The butler was there by the door.
Ms. Bear was dripping from head to toe,
But she had come in from the rain;
Her husband was not really missing,
In a wheelchair in quite a great pain.
The maid in the kitchen was cooking,
The girls with her learning their trade;
All startled when they heard the screaming,
Wet footsteps were heard by the maid.
Who was the lizard man's killer?
And why did they kill him right there?
Who was the culprit and killer,
And the reason for such a despair?
