A Poem

Ok, since I posted a Leonard Nimoy video, I thought I would share this lovely little nugget of a poem written by Mr. Nimoy.  The first time I heard it I was down the shore with some friends, and we were all hanging around and drinking beer and listening to "The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins" along with some William Shatner songs too.  Everyone was cracking up, then one of my friends magically pulls out a book of poetry by Nimoy and begins to recite the following:
I am me
you are you
our love
is us
to stop loving you
I would have to
stop loving me

I think that you'll have to agree with the publishers of his poetry books Blue Mountain Press when they state:   'Leonard Nimoy is surely one of the world's "special" people.'

It's a good thing he had a hit with Star Trek, isn't it? He'd have starved as a poet or singer.

He is so self centered, as is evident through his poetry. If it weren't for Star Trek he would be nothing!
