Sort of like a 'whatever happened to...' instead of an instructional poem.

Nice write.

I love all the creative verbs here. Great work!

Nice job! A newspaper article (I use the term loosely) inspired a poem for me today.
Check the sidebar in My Muskoka, a sort of a dance.

Wayne - not only did you write a poem here, but you set yourself up with a dozen or so great starts to some character creation. Love it when piece A folds into future work. Nicely done.
