Then his own wit and wisdom
as his rhymes came into play.
No face, no eyes, just pen and ink,
that took my breath away.
Separate again, his voice alone
from cds, soft and low
can take you places in your mind
where only dreams can go.
And those he’s met in person
say he’s clever, quick, and bright.
His charm can make you feel as if
you’re the only one in sight.
Now imagine if you will,
that each and every trait
have combined in just one man
by some cosmic quirk of fate.
Wouldn’t you think the Powers that Be
who search from coast to coast
would see those obvious things we see
and grab him for their host?
Because, (and this is crucial),
when Regis retires his coffee cup,
with hosts whose backgrounds cling to “Soaps”,
That show will never be washed up.
