Hello Puppit Lady
Dedicated to Jim Atkins 1936-2008
"Hello PuppIt Lady, though they never knew you at all,
You told your Krendoll stories while toddlers at Barnes & Noble crawled.
You walked out on to the Improv Stage they whispered into your brain
Hemp named you PuppIt Lady, but Razel puppit got in the way.
And it seems you lived your life like UniCandle unicorn's flame in the wind
never knowing who to cling to when Razel's ice spell set in.
Puppit Lady fame was tough
The toughest role you ever played
with comics scrutinizing everything you said.
But Lake Worth created a Superstar
just ask me your good friend Jim sitting at Ray's bar.
and I'm so glad I have known you but you were always far and away
your candles still burn brightly by UniCandle unicorn's magical flame.
Hello PuppIt Lady your more than our PuppIt Lady,
and your much more than Razel, and your doll Melodie Mezoree'.
Hello PuppIt Lady and it seems to me you lived your life like a puppet with no strings
with no parachute to catch you when the Rum Shack stage fell in.
Hello Puppit Lady from the old man in the 3rd row
Thank you for the memories At Ray's,
South Shores and Rumshack comedy show.
I am glad to have known you…
But you were always far and away-
Your candles will always burn brightly
because will still have Razel and Melodie Mezoree'."
