Visual Poet’s Thirty, 30 Days of National Poetry Month 2011; Hollywood A-Listers Poem

On this day of National Poetry Month 2011; I honor those who represent Hollywood with sophistication, versatility and grace with my poem, visual poetry Hooray for Hollywood, Unique A-Listers Outweigh

Believe it, there are those who won’t ever
Dare, tarnish Hollywood’s face
They clearly shine with versatility, sophistication and grace
They are actors with skills
Free of a need for connections or a special pedigree
They haven’t time for scandals or toying with the greedy paparazzi
They ooze with a whole lotta passion, talent and sensibility
Their only dramas are proudly played out on the big screen
With impressive, bold, thespian diplomacy 
And, if that Academy Award is presented
Then, that desirable fêted Oscar
Symbolizes excellent work and an endorsed reality 
Hooray for the real A-Listers, they are Hollywood’s mainstay
They set tone in the midst of Tinsel Town’s melee
They a group of classy celebrities from Hollywood to Broadway
They are restoring the mystique of the red carpet heyday
Hollywood, CA; it is now, most surely, a new day
All because of those unique A-listers who absolutely, outweigh
