Sonneteen

The sixties, and the movie scene

When celebrities needn’t live so clean

Studios controlling all that was seen

Public never saw actors being mean

 

There was one legend of the big screen

for acting and action ever so  keen.

A man’s man and a woman’s dream

most credible hero ever seen.

 

Did every stunt in which he was seen.

Replaced ‘cos of danger he’s never been.

Even jumped over fences on a war machine

in the best motorbike stunt ever seen.

 

This legend whose name luckily rhymes so clean

The one and the only Steve McQueen.
