Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Master Thespian
That's what you are
Master Thespian
A stage born star
Like the Barrymores of plays gone by
How the audience gets teary eyed
Curtains still call for John David Small

Master Thespian, of every troupe
But like Nicholson, you flew the coop
That's why Johnny's missed by everyone
Say bon jour to El Capitan
Where oh where did Master Thespian roost?

(Musical Interlude)
Oh, where in the world, is John David Small?

Master Thespian, a la marquee
Like Olivier, Hamlet to be
Guess ole Johnny's in Afghanistan
In some cave of the Taliban's
Where or where did Master Thespian scoot?

Okay, fives it is! :-D

Thanks for the good thoughts and kind words, Lionel, they are much appreciated.

I'm busy with lots of other stuff in my non-Internet life these days, folks. Somethings had to give -- writing and posting and reading and commenting and voting on AmIRight was one of those somethings. We've all got to make choices. That was one of mine. Nothing personal -- I still love you all !!
