A Poetic Happy Media Um

What I never say is Should be a question on a game show quiz Did I tell you about the time Standing in line Only to find myself most likely declined Since I did not have the right look Wanted in the casting book What I never say is Should be a question on an audition quiz There was a reason for all that Thinking about it where I sat Dealing with a mentality of a rat Looking for cheese Forgetting words thank you and please What I never say is This is ‘show biz’ Not seeing any fizz Loading on a dock Or industrial block Only machines going by Telling a story to make the audience laugh or cry Using facades having no backing Issue visual talent do the attacking Light's camera action This will be some attraction Inside a studio owned military hanger ever so cold Praying production does not fold Keeping things cool Asking themselves ‘are they really the fool?’ Swimming in the on-air placement pool Winners in the interview contest Thinking they are the best Looking into a recording device Having a presentation honest and nice Enjoying their wedding rice After being on a roll with the dice Finding a special day Romancing on the bay When opportunity knocked Timed well just like setting the clock What I would say was Those photogenic people do make the buzz Honeybees in a twenty-four-hour perpetual hive Keeping us feeling alive
