I AM ibex. Scavenger HUNT
The quest began with all the fun
The motive was “Let’s go crazy”, on the run
“Are you up for the challenge?” it was asked
You had to prove it, by completing all the tasks
All of the building turned in to an investigation ground
“Bringing out the Khoji inside you”, was every team’s sound
Let us see a glimpse of “How well you play?”
Let us witness, how well you carved the clay
