 Poems for Lovers and Sinners

Just a Talkie Show

  You said you'd take me to the stars

  Show me the Seven Wonders of the World

  There were promises of riches, pure as gold

  Just like Midas, you had that touch...But

       All I ever got was a talkie show!

  Before that band, and the 'I do'

  You seemed the perfect gent to know

  You gave me gifts and flowers a plenty

  I thought I was marrying into Gentry!

  I loved you like Helen loved Paris...But

  All I ever got was a talkie show!

  Alas it was a charade, a dupe

  A story from a picture book

  There is no riches, pure as gold

  Your Midas touch was just 'Fools Gold'


  All I ever get is a TV picture show!
