Funny Lady of the 1960s

Hollywood’s Lucille Ball, loved by many, 
had an enormously profound effect on me.

She was funny and kind and goofy,
and so wonderful, she lit up my 1960’s TV.

My favorite show of hundreds of thousands
is of her and Ethel making candy.

Until Carol Burnett came along, I thought a funnier
woman could never be.

This gorgeous entertainer will probably never 
know the enormous effect she has on me still today.

Many an evening I laugh until I cry at her
funny antics on my TV, I love to watch her play.
