HOLLYWOOD STAR MEMORIES

 

ON AUGUST 2, 2001, I TRAVELED TO LOS ANGELES

TO SEE MY FAVORITE MAN, THE ONE WITH

THOSE SEXY AND RESPLENDENT HAZEL EYES

FINALLY RECEIVE HIS OVERDUE HONOR:

A STAR ON THE HOLLYWOOD WALK OF FAME,

THE ONE AND ONLY, THE GREAT GUY WILLIAMS BY NAME.

 

THE CROWD WAS QUITE SPARSE AT FIRST LIGHT

BUT SOON THE HOUR OF THE CEREMONY

DREW NEAR. AND THEN CAME THE PRESS,

THE WILLIAMS FAMILY AND FANS GALORE FROM

ALL OVER THE WORLD; THEY REMEMBERED HIM WELL

OF HIS FINE ACTING SKILL WHAT TALES THEY DID TELL.

 

FROM BELGIUM, FRANCE, AND ITALY HIS FANS CAME

TO SHOWER THEIR BELOVED STAR WITH DEAR LOVE:

RED ROSES, SWEET TEARS AND TREASURED PICTURES.

GUY JR., TONI, JANICE WILLIAMS [AND NANDO OF

COURSE] UNVEILED THE WONDERFUL MARBLE STAR

WHAT A BEAUTIFUL WAY TO HONOR ONE AWAY SO FAR.

I KNOW ALL OF YOU FELT THE SAME WAY I DID WHEN

WE WATCHED GUY JR. AND ALL THE ZORRO CO STARS

PRAISE HIM AS A MAN OF TASTE, FAME AND GRACE.

FOR THE ONE GENTLE MAN WHO SHOULD HAVE BEEN THERE

THE MAN IN BLACK, THE MASKED AVENGER, EL ZORRO

WAS HOME WITH HIS GOD WHERE ONE DAY WE WILL FOLLOW.

 

I REMEMBER LOOKING AROUND, AND TO MY GREAT SURPRISE

EVERYONE WAS CRYING AND SOME HELD HANDS. I PRAYED:

ALMIGHTY FATHER, TAKE CARE OF YOUR DEVOTED SERVANT

ARMANDO JOSEPH CATALANO BY NAME. AND NOW WHEN

I SEE ZORRO LATE AT NIGHT I LOOK FOR THOSE HAZEL EYES

THE FAMOUS SMILE, THE SEXY GRIN. THE MAN EVERYONE KNOWS

FOREVER AND FOREVER MORE AS THE DARK ANGEL, THE

SAVIOR OF THE POOR AND THE WEAK, MI CABALLERO, MY ZORRO.
