Skulduggery’s afoot; did you hear him say,
Trouble’s abroad and that means TODAY?
It’s time to get out there and face the Faceless Ones,
Skulduggery and friend; his best number one.
Skulduggery is dead; he is only some bones,
Traipsing through of Dublin, appearing alone
Then, just as we think he is finished – again,
Valkyrie appears and saves her best friend.
Derek Landy, a cabbage farmer by trade,
Was inspired to create this detective and aid,
While tending his crops in the field one day,
He shouted, Eureka, I have it; I’m made!
I won’t have to tend cabbages anymore,
Working the fields until my back is quite sore,
Skulduggery and partner will give me it all,
Money and fame; I will have such a ball.
So it’s goodbye from Derek and adios from me,
He’s off to the bank and I’m off to a field,
Searching through cabbages for some ideas of my own,
Like The Crazymad Detective and his sidekick called Bones.
Nah, that’s no good, it’s too corny. Now let me see…
Ah, I have it, Doctor Bones and his Grievous Travelling Palaces.
That certainly has a ring to it.
Pardon, you want to know what a Travelling Palace happens to be?
Hah, that’s easy to explain.
No! I won’t tell you! Read Alice in Wonderland on Top of the World On Top of the World.
And when you have read it you will understand what they are.
