Fun Treasure maps

This seemed as good a place as any for this one.

Just a little money up front for a fun-filled map
For more than a decade, Zapencki hawked his fun treasure maps to small business owners across the state, and raked in hundreds of thousands of dollars up front, then failed to produce the maps for years, if at all.
Lift me up above this, the flames and the ashes,
Lift me up and help me to fly away.
Lift me up above this, the broken, the empty,
Lift me up and help me to fly away,
Lift me up!

I've been known to hide birthday and Christmas presents and put treasure maps to their location into the card or stocking...never figured on making money on it. Just thought it was fun. Bet your kids would love that, James.
