Morale Booster - Poem by Ima Ryma
Bob Hope gave soldiers fifty years
Of U.S.O. entertainment.
Through times of war and peace, the cheers
Charged Hope's heart wherever he went.
But good cheer was not always fast,
Especially with wounded ones.
If any joke punchlines were cast,
Let the injured hit the homeruns.
Hope would play second fiddle straight,
And give the soldiers lines to make
A bit of fun out of a fate
That fell upon for freedom's sake.
The soldier closed with one last grin,
Then death took over life within.
