Really like the rhyme of crime and dime here :). Crazy that you crafted a story like that with just fifty words!

Thank you! I am not a poet, as you can see! But it just came to me! Thank you for reading and commenting! :)

I think you have more talent than you give yourself credit for. Good fifty-word poem. Remind me to never go on a cruise with you!

Thank you! It was good fun to do, but I am not a poet (don't tell anyone, but I don't understand the rules of poetry!). ;)

Poirot eat your heart out on this conman! (Brannagh sink your teeth into this scenario).

LOL! Thank you for reading and commenting! :)

Nice. A entire crime novel condensed into six lines of poetry, complete with epilogue!

loved it and got a laugh

Thank you! :)
