"Catch Me If You Can": Catch this poem if you can

Frank Abagnale Junior,

A con man perhaps?

Left home at sixteen,

And forged many checks

 

A pilot once,

A doctor, then lawyer

His careers changed often,

Unknown to employers

 

A good-looking boy,

Charming in fashion

His falsetto, though wavered

Was truly impassioned

 

Frank’s girl Brenda

Had quite lovely pipes

Her song had me weeping

A love of the winsome type

 

Hanratty chased him,

A special bond grew

They shared a heart warming scene

Before jail came to view

 

To begin I was bored,

Maybe even glum

The actors seemed average

Perhaps a bit numb

 

Same story for the voices

They started quite plain

But as they settled in

My weariness waned

 

The costumes were grand,

Flashy like Broadway

The lights did their job,

Enhancing the play

 

My favorite part,

Might have been,

The ridiculous note

Frank hit near the end

 

A charming display

Of a very true story!

I recommend you see Frank

In all of his glory

 

All in all, the show had me moved

Bring the tots,

Bring the ‘rents!

The smiles will be lots.
