Crumdrum - conundrum

Today’s mystery object at our creative writing class

Crumdrum - conundrum

Brass handled
pan handled
collector of crumbs
into its drums
from the restaurant table
the spills of Fred and Mabel
Rolled up
Stored up
then taken away
to the waste bay
out of sight
done just right
by the table boy or waiter
unseen by the eater
maître d' on point
in a first class Victorian restaurant.
