Alphabet, Schmalphabet – X, x

Found Photo - Circa 1900Xavier’s vexing X­-ray eyes
Would certainly make him an excellent spy.

He’s a wizard at poker and hide­-and­-go­-seek;
He can tell what a squirrel has stuffed in its cheek;
He can locate the needle in any haystack;
He knows what you’re hiding there, behind your back.

And he sees lots of things that he isn’t supposed…
But I’d better not say any more about those.
