Chasing those comedies and clubs is all she could really do

2008 poems

Chasing those comedies and clubs,

She did this most of Her struggle through life,

and then in 1994 She appeared in Her first movie "CB4". T

his lady did everything that She could to make it big;

unfortunately all that She really had was 13 episodes of Her own show

and a cassette tape of all Her comedian work that She came up with on Her own.

Then a terrible tragic day came along;

when someone had reported

Her dead by Her garden in

Dec. 1999. This was caused by kidney failed.
