Celluloid Man

On the silver screen
A luminous presence
on TV
just 10 inches tall
 
Theatrical and dashing
Are the gestures
Melodious the voice
Every sentence is
carefully delivered
Method acting
is what you're into
 
No you won't easily
 repeat yourself
Sometimes startingly
original
other times a parody
of yourself
 
Your name may be
De Niro, Pacino or Eastwood
for every role
you wrap yourself
in a fitting layer
of celluloid
 
One day it will be
Your final curtain call
The silver screen blank
But in everyone's memory
You will be immortalized
Forever
