Harold's Delight

Before I get started, I would like to warmly thank Matthew Coniam of Carfax Abbey for calling this blog a Great Read! I'm incredibly honored!

Now, the latest poem, which for some reason the Muse sent in the style of old-school rap. *laughs*

no one was better
playing the go-getter
Lloyd showed everyone how it was done

he chased every dream
followed every moonbeam
but he never forgot to have fun

alongside Hal Roach
(his good friend and his coach)
he made one-reelers to some acclaim

first as Lonesome Luke
then one day on a fluke -
he wore glasses and blasted to fame

when folks think funny
i'll bet you my money
not many folks know him from the past

but if not his name
they've all seen him the same -
hanging off the clock in "Safety Last!"

Harold Lloyd

Hahaha, great writing, and very (very)clever and amusing rhymes.

Found your blog by way of Matthew Coniam, who was absolutely right about it.
