Meeting Jim - Poem by Christina Sunrise

Meeting Jim for the very first time,
he had a smile a mile wide.
He knew I would do comedy on the stage,
he knew I was half his age.
For Jim was 40 years older than me,
it didn’t matter he had integrity.
He said he would show me the ropes,
he felt some comedians where just dopes.
Jim protected me from all the wolves,
don’t mess around, it was understood.
Jim was hilarious that first night,
he was trying to impress me and get it just right.
afterwards at Blue Martini where he drew the line,
The line with a guy who wanted to dance with me,
he said “hey, did you buy her a drink, let’s see? ”
It was very funny, for we where only drinking water,
not even ice tea.
Funny times more to come,
Jim was hilarious and really fun.
