Once Leading Man

Once Leading Man

He's offering his last performance
just for me as his audience.
His gallantry lacks adroitness
and is in imminent need of a
galvanic boost.
Perhaps the years of practice have
left him with a patina that now
requires a new burnisher.

This one man play is a rendition of
the sixties version which pales
in comparison.
The once magical retreat has been
replaced by withering weeds and
the once sweet melody is too
ponderous to bring out of storage.

As he offers his final bow, I stand
and blow a final kiss to a once
consummate thespian who's long-running
career as a leading man is over.
