'Vanished' - Poem by guy lipmore
Debts spiralling, one chance,
‘Fake death' and disappearance.
For the insurance claim, just one aim.
New future, ‘new life',
No one knew except his wife.
‘Terrible tragedy', 'Lost' at sea.
Massive search ensued, he was not ‘rescued'!
Presumed ‘dead', the lie was fed.
Family shattered to the core, Darwin ‘hidden' room next door.
Five years continued the sham' and the scam!
Finally their ‘luck' ran out, ‘caught'!
By ‘photo' on the net.
Brought back to book,
Their families it ‘shook'.
The World felt sorry for each relative.
Them left with a ‘life scar' despite the motive.
Their ‘Mum & Dad', sons' chose to ignore,
The parents betrayed them, situation to deplore.
Man with a plan and a canoe!
He and her carried through.
