Obit Laureate -- Fantastic!
The Morning News (online magazine) has recent obituaries — a gong striker, a burger matriarch, a bagpipe virtuoso— transformed into light verse. See this link
Way cool, Amy! How do you find these things?
The Morning News poetic obits has inspired me to come up with a post-mortem verse. Here goes:
Bruno Kirby, 57; Prolific actor
There was a fine actor named Bruno,
who appeared in more movies than you know.
Of all the rest
Among the best:
"Godfather II" and "Donnie Brasco."
In comedies he played the best pallie,
A role that seemed right up his alley --
Like the buddy to Harry,
Who matched up with Carrie
In the classic "When Harry Met Sally."
