An Alphabet of Talent

Fred Astaire was king of tap
Biggie Smalls was huge in rap
Carson (Johnny)ruled TV
Dylan’s songs are poetry
Elvis made the girls all swoon
Frank Sinatra loved to croon
Greta Garbo hid from sight
Hitchcock gave us all a fright
Isaac Hayes’ voice dips low
Johnny Depp steals every show
Kenny G can blow that sax
Larry David can’t relax
Michael Jackson changed his face
Norah Jones embodies grace
Oscar Wilde wrote books and plays
Peter Falk had piercing gaze
Quincy Jones finds music stars
Raitt (That's Bonnie) rocks guitars
Sally Field lights up the screen
Tony Kushner nails each scene
Uma Thurman makes men drool
Viggo’s talented and cool
William Shatner’s still around
Xin Xin Xiong in films is found
Yoko Ono married John
Zach Braff’s big on Amazon

All this talent, A to Z
Keeps us entertained, agree?

for Cyndi MacMillan's ABC Couplet contest

    Alan Alda loved the ladies. Biggie Smalls was no Slim Shady. Just a thought for your consideration. :)

    I think Larry David would get a hoot out what you said about him. I did. :) Very enjoyable write ilene. Is that all you have to say about William Shatner? :)

    love it love it love it. I am just loving this contest. It has produced some of the most entertaining ABC poems I have ever read. By the way, why dont' you begin line C with C to make it all line up? You could say Carson (late night's Johnny)ruled tv!
