Love And Marriage (In Hollywood)



Love is a game
In Hollywood, but
It is not the biggest.
Marriage is, as it has always been
Even back in the days of the silent
And the black and white movies.
Love is money exchanged and played
Between two (or more) people.
And it is a shame. Period.
Marriage is (in most cases), not for love,
And for life.
So when "stars collide and
Fall from the sky" into the trap...
Parenthood becomes a gamble (more so,
As statistics clearly show),
Where the children are
For life--the sure losers.
And it is criminal. Period.
Love and marriage in Hollywood
Make for a big bomb at the box office!
