PUZZLE POTLUCK 2
Bar
Layton encountered him skulking around,
In the seediest bar, in the bad part of town
"Excuse me, old friend, but have you a minute-"
"I ain't your old friend - that's what I said, innit?"
Calm and collected dear Layton remained,
As he tried once again to talk to this pain.
"I'm looking for someone - she lives on a hill-"
"That cranky old widow? I've got nothing to spill."
Now Layton could tell that this was a lie,
For he nervously twitched, and so did his eyes.
"I'll tell you what, Layton, you insufferable gnu,
If you solve this dilemma, I'll give you a clue."
The bartender looks up. "Sorry bub - for some reason, the ingredients aren't mixing too well right now."
