Drama Twins, Unmasked - Collaboration with Andrea Dietrich

I'll bring a tear to every eye,
and I can make a grown man cry.
To grip you is my specialty,
for once you are caught up in me,
strong feelings will intensify.

I'll make you ponder things like why
a nice guy has to cheat or lie.
I mirror sad humanity.
I'll bring a tear.

It's by man's flaws and sometimes by
the hand of fate that he must die.
To see man face mortality,
you'll empathize; I'm tragedy!
Have tissues ready.  Dry your eye.
I'll bring a tear.


I’m full of fun for everyone.
Watch me now and you’ll come undone.
Test me with a humor trial - 
If you frown, you’re in denial! 
I’m a funny son-of-a-gun!

I’m full of silly, zany puns.
I’ll make you forget life’s problems.
With my antics I’ll beguile;
I’m full of fun!

For I’m Drama’s beloved son.
I’m Comedy, second to none.
Full of tricks to make you smile;
Entertaining for a while.
Don’t go yet. My gags aren’t done;
I’m full of fun!

A Double Rondeau

    Susan, Yes my mother always said the black-eyed peas were the pennies and the collards or turnips were the green backs or ones, fives, tens , and twenties..One was suppose to eat much so that one would have a large income this new year..Sara
