Police - The Missing Children - Poem by Paul Warren

In the sixties the three Beaumont children disappeared
From Glenelg on Australia Day to make parents scared
Of their children in a public place alone
And being snatched by a pedophile unbeknown

In the seventies it happened at the Adelaide Oval with 2 girls missing again
Kirstie Gordon and Joanne Radcliffe in a deed hard to comprehend
The glory days of children exploring until dark with ease
Disappeared overnight never to return or to please

There have been psychics and a hundred theories to explore
And it would seem with the passage of time we won't know anymore
In these modern times there are less places to hide
But forever when thinking of our children we are suspicious when we decide.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

The Beaumont Children and the Adelaide Oval disappearances are famous missing children cases in Adelaide. It was the loss of innocence it caused for South Australian families that is everlasting. The latest theory is the 'Satin Man' but I think with the passage of time we will never know what happened. Vale to the children and for the families who have endured this nightmare my sympathy.
