i want William Shatner
i have 2 reasons to want him
the first is he's Canadian
the second is I've been listening to his mellifluous sexy voice for over 40 years
i'll admit he's now just a pudgy squinty eyed caricature of his previous self
when he appeared to a be tall straight backed courageous philosophical image of masulinity and enlightenment personified
but i don't care!!!
so what if he now speaks more haltingly then he ever did......
so what if his rosy red cheeks hints at what a perfect Santa he'd make
(or than his alcohol consumption has played hell with the circulatory system in his face)
does he still not have that tilting head complimented by a boyish grin???
those merry eyes that twinkle like whatever that Christmas poem says
is his mind not still ironic???
does he still have a flair to mold himself passionately to the woman he's dancing with
he could do that Rex Harrison" singing of my poems in my shell like ear
now i'm shivering with anticipation!!!
so i'm thinking that if i put those veal cutlets in my bra
and dye my hair some vivid color
i'd have a chance
what do ya think????
the main reason i want William Shatner is because in Boston Legal he played the part of a man changing with Alzheimer's with style and grace...lifting my spirits every week with optimistic possibilities
thanks Captain Kirk...u've helped me feel more hopeful about that voyage that some must take to "to go boldly where no man has ever gone before"
