Sheez! (a poem)

Russ Vaughn

 With apologies to Joyce Kilmer (and America on behalf of Charlie Sheen)
 
I think perhaps I’ve never seen

A fool as big as Charlie Sheen.

This fool’s career is sorely prest

To accept this role far from the best.

A fool who drinks and whores all day,

And sells his sordid charms for pay.

A fool who will on screen free share

That nest of vipers ‘neath his hair;

Upon whose bony chest now weighs

Insane denials of September days.

Poems come from fools, like me, unseen,

Only Hollywood can make a Charlie Sheen.
