Top Gun - Something for Everyone


The year is nineteen hundred eighty-six,
the biggest action, music, plots play through.
Behold the crowds are raving, buying ticks!
Top Gun, the movie’s here and overdue.

While brave Tom Cruise, the hero, rims the sky,
it’s really only stuntmen on those planes.
And to be sure, a romance follows nigh -
the female fans expect that love will reign.

Parental guidance warns some shoddy talk,
which gives the picture young adult appeal.
The sexy scenes are clean as new white chalk;
a final song provides nostalgic feel.

The mix for Top Gun 2, as yet unknown -
they must incorporate a role for drones.

    I was so small back then but I do remember the glasses. Very well done and written poem, and I applaud you for a unique and original theme.
