John Wilkes Booth TodayFacebooktwitterlinkedinmail

mustn’t permit deed of
john wilkes booth to stand
instead remove from that
time and place and raise today
in theatrical family thriving
in manhattan and nod when
hollywood beckons splendid
booth becomes movie star in his
early twenties making millions
while drinks snorts and
occasionally crashes cars but
fires only slurred words
