This time the verse has to incorporate the @Jessicalynnt chosen words hide, find, lost, look and seek. Here goes. Hide And Seek If I have treasure to hide It won’t be marked with a big letter X I’d make sure my treasure maps lied While stashing my booty where no one suspects So if Captain Hook tries his luck taking a look For my gold from a map conveniently found in some old book He’ll find the X marks a booby trap Such as a landmine set to zap Anyone daring to seek That which is safe from such a sneak Thief whose search will come at a terrible cost While my fortune will not be lost Because it’ll be kept in a Swiss bank account. I’m not dumb enough to bury such a vast amount Of money on some desert island. Do you understand? Don’t waste time seeking my buried stash Or you’ll end up dead while I get interest on all the cash.

Treasure chest
You may try to conceal your treasure But that will not deter my quest And soon I will enjoy the pleasure When I succeed and find that chest

How cute! Here's my awkward attempt: @Jessicalynnt's Poem with chosen words of hide, find, lost, look and seek Look at all the buds peeping out, Finding their way into the light, Lost they were hiding under the brown earth, Now being sought by the sun and heat, Sought and found, fresh and new. Seek and rays have found them.

The X does not denote where the treasure is hidden, it is just that he signed the map.

@arthurchappell That is why they had to be pirates because they could not apply for a passport.

A roguish tale, indeed, Arrrgh-thur. And a much safer alternative for hiding your money than burying it on some island's shore.

That was great. I couldn't have done this even if I worked on it every day for a month.
