Turning 100 Years Old

To land on American soil from Russia, was the 5-year old-

With his immigrant family, much happiness did happen to take hold.

Leaving behind those who had tormented his family-

His mother often said God Bless America, with much emotion to be.

In 1918 he became a naturalized citizen, served in the military, and

eventually this song was to unfold.

“God Bless America”
By Irving Berlin

While the storm clouds gather far across the sea,
let us swear allegiance to a land that’s free.
Let us all be grateful for a land so fair, as we
raise our voices in a solemn prayer.

God Bless America, land that I love.
Stand beside her and guide her
Through the night with a light from above.
From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans white with foam.
God Bless America, my home sweet home.
God Bless America, my home sweet home.

Montgomery Clift To Keep On Knocking But He Didn’t Get In

Starring Olivia de Havilland back in 1949-
The Heiress an extraordinary movie to find,
One involving lots of inherited money-
And a man trying to trick to collect a life of honey.
A Happy 102nd Birthday, for this actress, for us to keep in mind.

 

To “Bravely” Murder A Giraffe

To book a flight

With weapon in hand, in pure daylight,

From Kentucky off to South Africa to go-

A human being who is simply hollow.

A trophy “won” as the 4000 pound black giraffe fell with great might.

 

 

The world began to dry (Limerick)

The world began to dry

It stopped raining is the reason why,

But in the meantime-

This was not the end of this rhyme.

For much had to be cleaned and repaired in order to get by.
