SHERLOCK'S LAST CASE
"The photograph is black and white.
A man? A woman? Hermaphrodite?
The wristwatch small, the coat is pale,
The lock is definitely yale.
The hair is long, the expression grim,
Could be a her. Could be a him.
The shadow on the chest appears
To be a man with flattish ears.
Oh Watson, we are out of luck.
I have to say, for once, I'm stuck."
(The case remains open to this day,
For Holmes pre-dated DNA.)
