Can't Waste a Handsome Face

A good-looking man I know,
(he knows he is good-looking,)
lit on fire the college theater
and made the stage manager cry.

I guessed he would end up famous.

Now he arrests people,
writes tickets for a living
and you can bet still makes people cry
with his striking face and fiery soul
and the fact that he is taking them to jail.

I understand his reasons, and probably,
he is right.

Still, he has at least one true fan
selfishly hoping for his comeback to art.
