YOU’LL LIVE LONG AND PROSPER!

YOU’LL LIVE LONG AND PROSPER!

(In memory of Leonard Nimoy, d. 2/27/2015)

Our old friend, Leonard Nimoy,

Whose characters filled us with joy…

From black and white

To color done right,

He played both violent and coy.

He was more than an aging SPOCK,

But gave PERRY MASON a sock…

Brought to justice

Despite the insists

That the whole of his guilt was a crock.

Leonard Nimoy and NOVA*

Was natural for any space rover…

His vocation

Often narration,

A combination that won us over!

Oft portraying an outsider,

His career spread much wider…

Writing, directing

Oft intersecting

Weaving his plots like a spider.

But MR. SPOCK was the role

For “hundreds of years” extolled…

Through “NEXT GENERATIONS”

Various incarnations,

But hardly this actor’s whole.

–Jonathan Caswell

AUTHOR’S NOTE:  Characters and programs in capitals (upper case) are of mostly his TV work…he did star or appear in a number of movies and other productions…not just STAR TREK!
