Tom Cruise Clerihews

World famous actor Tom Cruise
in talent and looks cannot lose.
Success is the guy’s middle name.
It’s his love life he just can’t maintain!

A younger and hotter Tom Cruise
must have had to wear lifts in his shoes.
His first wife Nicole was so tall!
Did size ever matter at all?

With a much younger starlet, Tom Cruise
got attached, and it made for great news
when he jumped on a sofa with glee
for the whole world to see on TV.

The now over-50 Tom Cruise,
 to avoid more marital blues,
ought to find a new partner who
adores Scientology too.

for Frank's Favorite Actor Poetry Contest
(I really do like his acting, and anyway, what kind of rhyme can 
I make with something maybe like  (Ryan) Gosling? haha)

    I hope he would read it too. CAn you ever imagine that? Hey, tom, in the unlikely even that you are reading this, hope you know all this was in good fun. I heard you gave gifts to Katie almost every day, and that was really sweet.. Just don't force the scientology on folks, and you will be adored!!

    Gosh, is he over 50? Time flies!

  1. Date: 6/30/2013 9:47:00 AM

    He sure knows how to stir up controversy from time to time..........either he's hot.....or he's not! I remember those "Top Gun" days.........when he was on top of the heap........but then he got 'creepy' ! Good choice for a cleihew!!

  1. Date: 6/30/2013 8:48:00 AM

    I wonder how tall Tom is? Some of the biggest stars have been tiny people - like, Jimmy Cagne, George Raft, Tyrone Power. I hear they surrounded them with near midgets. How about Edward G. Robinson? I'm not crazy about Tom. I fear he is a small oerson all round. Good work though. Love, daver

    Fantastic actor....Rainman....A Few Good Men...The Last Samurai.....Awesome acting....personal life out of whack.....Great write, Andrea....Good luck...

    I am totally with you on the Ryan Gosling crush. Mr. Cruise I had respect for until he became a dictator over his wife with 'over-the-top' Scientology!! Great poem- Good luck for the competition

    liked it muchly Andrea.....its great to have the time to read you rstuff afte r my year off.....matter of fact I like Cruise a lot.....his involvement with sciento or various women are of no importance t o me ....but when yo u see him in Rainman or A Few Good Men he's impressive a s an wishes
