Here starts the clues that seem to be waste
But they will protect from actions of haste
At City Hall you might begin,
But this is not where you will end.
On private property I am not,
You will find me on a public plot.
Don't bring a shovel, no need to dig.
Don't bring a ladder, no need to be big.
Tuesday Morning Clue
You must search hard if you want to find me.
In front of your eyes is not where I will be.
Beside the path where many have ridden,
Is the obvious place that I am hidden.
Don't try to see me from your car
Even though from the road I'm not very far
In the city limits I will be found
A copper medallion big and round.
Tuesday Afternoon Clue
This clue will definitely lead you right,
Whether you hunt in the day or hunt by night.
In 1996 they discontinued this car
It was certainly one of the best by far
Not new but OLDS it carried its load
This car will place you on the right ROAD.
Wednesday Morning Clue
Don't go into someone's yard
That is certainly not public land
Don't go onto anyone's business
These are all private by a span
Public means owned by the city
Trespassing is really a pity
If you haven't found the treasure where it hides,
Maybe you haven't gotten out of your rides.
Three hundred sixty degrees is a good clue
This will help you know the street too
Wednesday Afternoon Clue
Your body is close to sixty percent
The earth they say is about two thirds
Not much on the desert is another hint
The treasure is found in reference to these words
