Sir Isaac Newton
I've never heard the vital information
That's why I got locked up.
I never saw the monster,
'X' marked the spot, but I didn't understand
What 'X' meant. I never looked at the key.
After I missed the monster I
wrote up a piece, but the 'X' key was missing on my keyboard.
When writing about an 'X' file, that key is key.
That got me angry, but finding an outlet
Made me angrier. 
What to do about that. 
I took it out on my neighbour's car.
I scrubbed it down and gave it a nice spray job.
He was beside himself.
He didn't like peach.
After that, I felt better,
I sat down, lifted the fallboard,
Tickled the ivory, but middle 'C'
Was gone. It ruined my Piano sonata No. 10.
How can unlock the secret melody
If I can't trust my own piano?
Such is life. Determination is key.
