“I’m doing fine, feeling healthy.
I haven’t had a stomach ache in a long time,”
He said while he twitched and flinched in a
Pair of grandma’s glasses, sitting in the chair
They provided for him. Do you need a water?
They let the talent smoke on set. It’s essential
To play to their sensitivities, even if they seem too human.

Just imagine enduring the entire parade route perched on the
Hot leather seat of the mustang, arm waving side to side like it’s a big stiff
One in a pants-down chase scene.
Imagine doing that the whole damn parade route?
No one ever thinks of the discomfort.
It’ll turn your face into a Roman candle, like it or not.

Three feet tall, hugging and hiding behind the big, comforting leg
Of injustice. “What do you say, honey?”
 (in a voice innocent and shy) “Thank you.”
