Disappearance

~

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.
