Just To Say...

I have seen
the Indiana Jones movie
that was in

Forgive me
the effects were so shiny
too CGI
and too much.

(Although I have to add an amended last stanza,
addressed to my fellow Indy fans...)

Forgive me
it was delicious
so appropriately corny
and so fun.
The original poem is here:

The idea for this spoof came from This American Life:

And to my cousin Victoria:
hope you enjoyed my crack at poetry spoofing.
