A Sonnet for Jack Haley

A Clanking Clattering Collection of
Caliginous Junk devoid of a heart,
That proved his self more capable of love
Than those who never suffered, ripped apart.

The vaudeville song and dance comedian
Possessing both the gruff and gentle voice
To get his way, while read to children,
As fans from generations still rejoice.

Replacing Ebson with an eye infection
He tin soldiered on, not turning back
Working past a silver, cursed complexion,
Acting ‘til the day he had a heart attack.

His testimonial is still clickin'
Within the cased heart forever tickin'


  1. nice - love *the* heart metaphor running through like a lifeline. :-)


You've found your way inside my head and now there's no way out!
