Array ( [sid] => 187189 [catid] => 1 [aid] => mick [title] => Hollywood [time] => 2020-09-08 16:17:00 [hometext] => [bodytext] => I was a man of stage and screen
The likes the world has never seen
A leading man of the most incredible beauties
For that was my duty
I gathered my lines and read them so divine
With precision time and rhyme
As I aged, I was plagued
Sat out to pasture
The young gents
Became my masters
Only in Hollywood
Is this understood

Topic: Nostalgic



I was a man of stage and screen
The likes the world has never seen
A leading man of the most incredible beauties
For that was my duty
I gathered my lines and read them so divine
With precision time and rhyme
As I aged, I was plagued
Sat out to pasture
The young gents
Became my masters
Only in Hollywood
Is this understood

I like this, tells a lovely story. I could see an old acting coach using this poem as an exercise.

if we are lucky, we have a peak to be surpassed. Not just a Hollywood phenomena, but yes, more obviously understood in that market.
