A Title? Damfino

Sheer comic bliss for every fan,
From "One Week" to "The Cameraman".
Who made this work they idolized?
The man with stardust in his eyes.

'Til one stroke with a fountain pen
Propelled him to the Lion's den;
They snubbed and underutilized
The man with stardust in his eyes.

His brilliance dulled by angst and drink,
His future teetered on the brink -
But Fate would change, revitalize
The man with stardust in his eyes.

It brought him Eleanor, his wife,
And retrospectives of his life;
They loved his work, and truly prized
The man with stardust in his eyes.

If I could write his epitaph,
I'd say he lived to make us laugh...
His kind of genius never dies.
The man with stardust in his eyes.
