Hollywood - Poem by nimal dunuhinga

A suburb of Los Angeles, California
Very famous for the motion-picture industry it seems.
I hear they are searching a new actor for an ugly role.
Suddenly I sent one of my old photographs with a resume.
And I got a prompt reply; 'Sorry Sir, you are too ugly for the role.
But anyway we decided to hang your photograph in our studio for future references.'
I responded, 'Thank you very much for your kindness Sir.
And I hope you give me a King's role very soon.'

    Much wit and wisdom in this one. Ugliness like beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
    Write on, Nimal.

    Warmest regards,
