Once was a family,

      A patriarch, head;

Now, an anomaly;

      The patriarch dead.


No bond can hold up,

      For long, I am told;

But then, each a story,

      Uniquely condoled.


Patriarch, matriarch,

      Of figurehead, old;

Each category

      Obliquely extolled.


Out from disorder

      An order is found;

But this be one story,

      Such stories abound


Once thought

      First wrought,

Ought be well-found.


      Now, this was a story,

      No longer around.
