Part Three

Lil wants to see Hollywood stars
and Rocky just doesn’t give a darn.
To him, movie stars are just a yarn.

The record company building
looks like a stack of pancakes,
ripe to be brought down by earthquakes.

Rocky and Lil head down to Long Beach
to check out the Queen Mary.
“What are we, tourists?” asks Rocky of Tom, Dick and Harry.

But Lil is too busy with her hair
in the convertible they have borrowed
and just now almost narrowed

on the 105.
Soon the ocean glitters next to the ship,
“Now wasn’t that worth the trip!”

shouts Lil as the wind flies by.
The sun has parked himself above.
What else do you want besides love?
