Lincoln


seen @ Jamaica Multiplex Cinemas, Jamaica, Queens, NY
12.4.12

In Steven Spielberg's twelve-year odyssey
To bring the Lincoln story to the screen,
There must have been moments of great despair
And distractions that led him off the path.
My artistic ideas, they come and go
I tend to flit from one thing to the next.
Therefore I respect Spielberg for his faith
In his opus though fortunes rose and fell
'Cause inspiration is a tricky thing
One's ideas ne'er fully satisfy
How many drafts did Mr. Lincoln make
In his great plan to liberate the slaves?
If roles were switched, could I have persevered?
What, me, a filmmaker? That's pretty weird!
