Response to How To Save A Drowning Victim

Wayne and Payne


One tragic night in the deep dark sea.
A star drowned by the name of Natalie.
She was heard to be crying out loud for help,
One claimed to hear but worried for herself.

On the neighboring yacht was Marilyn Wayne,
The boat owner was her boyfriend John Payne.
Both young, strong swimmers, used to the sea,
Yet neither dove in, they remained where they be.

Wayne says she awakened around eleven o'clock,
heard a woman drowning which gave her a shock.
She heard cries from this woman until they ceased,
After 25 long minutes, she then goes back to sleep.

She claims to have called for help on the phone,
while a person that can't swim is in the sea alone.
There has never been proof anywhere of this call,
It looks as if Marilyn Wayne did not call at all.

Both could have saved this small woman so near,
What stopped them from trying remains unclear.
Perhaps each feared the risk of own life,
So remained onboard, they had no strife.

That's plenty of time to swim & end her cries,
Yet they acted like cowards & Natalie Wood dies.
Neither one of them feel they were to blame,
Yet what if they’d known the victim's name?

I believe they would have dove off their boat,
She'd been easily seen wearing the red downcoat.
Or maybe they were impaired with too much booze;
Shameful how Wayne loves her name in the news,

But whatever the reasons, they didn’t even try,
And learned the next morning a woman did die.
If only they'd have tried, their boat wasn't far,
They'd have been heros; not the cowards they are.

The world's population yet holds many good souls,
that would have dove in, saving her their main goal.
For the question remains and will yet forever stay,
If they’d tried to save her, would she be here today?
