A poetic story for fans of a dying industry

A poetic story for fans of a dying industry

Remember the days a half century ago?

When people stood outside in movie lines for hours toe to toe?

The movie fans stood in line to see movie premiers,

Sometimes as the rain fell on them of a size larger than elephant tears.

There was Gable, Bogart, Tracy, Poitier and who can ever forget Brando?

This was also the film era of Hepburn, Davis, Leigh, and what about Greta Garbo?

We stood in line in anticipation of seeing our favorite stars,

Back in the 1950' and 1960's fans also watched movies at drive-ins in their cars.

There were no blue-tooth's, no Spotify, Amazon and certainly no streaming as there is now,

We watched our favorite films on the big screen or only on the late, late night TV show.

We loved the taste of a refreshing coca cola and we could smell the fresh popcorn cooking on the theater stoves,

It was a simpler time when people talked to each other….in person and we went to the movie theater in droves.

Movies meant so much and there was meaning in each one that movies drew the fans in hordes,

But yet we always stayed at home once a year to watch the Academy Awards.

Now here we are the 89th Academy Awards must be politically correct,

The women's and men's fashions are meant to shock for the greatest affect.

Innovative and heartwarming stories rarely exist; films are mostly based on a book,

The winners speeches are so long now that some of these self- proclaimed stars are given the old hook.

Oh how I wish that VHS, DVD, Blu-Ray and 4K were never created,

Then the 89th Oscars would be more than just gold plated.

We would once again stand in line, eat fresh popcorn and hush the strangers sitting directly behind us,

Instead we don't even have to watch the 89th Academy Awards anymore since winners are announced through instant messaging which leaves us with nothing left to discuss.

This my friends is a dying industry,

Voting seems to be determined in advance which no longer leaves any mystery.

So here I sit, lonely-hearted,

No longer wanting to watch this years 89th Academy Awards, other than to pay tribute and recognize the stars who recently (dearly) departed.
