The Secret Leaf Peeper Police

The job 
Of The Secret Leaf Peeper Police
Is to Search and Enjoy
Sleuthing the nooks and crannies
For colored leaf envoys

In the Western US
The colors play hide and seek
It's not a game for the meek

Where I grew up
In the East
There was no game
And no police
Just look out the window
There you go
Fall colors everywhere on show

This is the year
I Joined The Force
I made extra effort
To search though the forests
Like digging for truffles
Clusters of Aspens
Laid out before us

The scene of The Crime?
