WHY IMPRESSIONISTS SUCK
By Jim Meskimen

JOHN MALKOVICH
Is anything more sad and lame
contemptible, beneath disdain,

COLIN FIRTH
In short, provoking of disgust,
than being an impressionist?

ROBERT DENIRO
A third rate, even fourth rate skill
the definition of “cheap thrill”,

TOMMY LEE JONES
like watching farm equipment rust
is watching an impressionist.

NICK OFFERMAN
A relic from a distant day
that long since should have passed away

GEORGE CLOONEY
Dishonorably mentioned is
the pitiful impressionist.

CHRISTOPHER WALKEN
Weird and slightly ostentatious,
tired debris from old Las Vegas

TOM BROKAW
Whose former fans have all dismissed
allegiance for impressionists.

DR. PHIL
How many opportunities
passed up and wasted because he’s

DROOPY DOG
Hell bound to follow what he must?
Pity the poor impressionist.

WOODY ALLEN
Doomed to live an abject failure
dogged by his own echolalia,

MORGAN FREEMAN
Better to crumble into dust
than live as an impressionist.

BRYAN CRANSTON
His borrowed voices can’t deflect
a fate of well-deserved neglect.

GARRISON KEILLOR
His name’s on simply no one’s lips
pretentious, vain impressionist.

KEVIN SPACEY
That sound, did anybody moan?
That creature at the microphone

JACK NICHOLSON
is last on everybody’s list;
Forgettable impressionist.

GW BUSH
When Peter at that shiny gate
confronts those souls who imitate,

IAN MCKELLEN
He will but shake a heav’nly fist
and curse condemned impressionists.

RON HOWARD
But, ’til that time, we’ll tolerate
the good-for-nothing reprobate

ROBIN WILLIAMS
and hide the truth that we’re just pissed
that WE can’t be impressionists.
