Tonight the local news guy said police were investigating:

a woman who had  gone dead, a man who had gone missing, two middle-aged 
men who had gone for good, several dogs that had gone but not returned, 
Maude Gonne, Gone with the Wind, mass of the universe gone missing,

        And he who dribbled couplets like a snake
        Coiled to a lithe precision in the sun
        Is missing. -Allen Tate ("Mr. Pope")

middle-aged women gone wild, gone wrong, gone country, gone fishing, 
gone to the dogs, gone to seed, her deal gone bad, where no man has gone 
before, gone mad, since you've been gone, where all the flowers have 
gone, gone hunting, gone birding, gone but not forgotten, and gone native.
