Where Did Saint Elmo Go

They said the screenplay was complete Filled with scenery and dialogue that was artistically sweet An entourage was cast Star’s children from the past Having the marketable photo look Picked up after flipping through a modeling book It was like an eighties high school affair Dramatic conflicts without a scare Like if the pictures in the fashion magazines could move Physically talented images having nothing to prove Fluffy fables Dependent on designer labels Watched on cable Was the social thing Before graduating planning the wedding ring Getting ready for the stork This was learning relationship blocking work Releasing aggression Setting the proper impression Now today the creative problems are replayed Allowing youngsters to learn a perceived lucrative trade Should today’s parental guiders feel the guilt? About the teen drama genre the Republican Presidential era built Say no to drugs the leader’s ladies visual theatrics did campaign “Stay at home and watch us you will never get blamed” When their children’s script arrives And the kids decide to give it a try Remember Millie the dog might have penned the original first Only for party like rock stars attitude making the inflated balloon burst
