The Poppleton Effect
© Kerrie Foster, Illawarra Breakfast Poets
The jazz crowd, they all got excited.
Mr. Poppleton was back in town...
The way that Greg moves round the audience
and picks out whoever he will,
and sings to them through his own megaphone;
you see the crowds get a thrill.
He sings songs from back in the twenties,
and he dresses in clothes from back then.
The consummate entertainer,
we could have him back time and again.
