Fugitives, or Still Lucan

Missing: Lord Lucan,
His bunk done abroad;
Musicians ask who can
Retrieve the lost chord.

Shergar’s last act:
Under finisher’s orders;
Nellie, trunk packed,
Left circus and sawdust.

And diners, alas,
On the Marie Celeste,
Like weapons of mass
Destruction, went west.

Missing as well are
Atlantis, A Link.
Glenn Miller’s propellor
Is lost in the drink.

Health policy, too,
Is somewhere in space;
Look up in the blue:
It’s found without trace.
