I would love to live from my writing, let me get this straight,
But, on motion pictures, writers seem to have fallen out with fate.
Fortunately, Woody Allen gave them a chance with Owen Wilson in Midnight in Paris
But look at Anthony Hopkins in Shadowlands portraying a so sad CS Lewis,
Or at Emma Thomson in Stranger than fiction who got torn up between her heart and brain.
Even Anne Hathaway had to go to drama for Jane Austen in Becoming Jane.
One would think that, as a writer, Johnny Depp would handle it well
But Secrete window sounded less like Heaven than like Hell.
And don’t even get me started with Bradley Cooper in Limitless !
I truly need a catchphrase, everybody has one in the US.
