America's Got Talent? So Do You!g
Posted: September 26, 2010
So what do you do well?…
The little girl with the grown-up voice
was not our nation's final choice.
With gifts and poise beyond her years,
she fell a wee bit short.
Through Broadway tunes young Jackie showed
she knew success's narrow road.
And though that journey yet awaits,
at ten she's still a star.
When all the votes were finally in,
the winner was one Michael Grimm
who plans to share his million bucks
with kin down in the Gulf.
America's Got Talent! True?
Aren't you amazed at what folks do?
From opera singers dressed in drag
to pint-sized Fred Astaires.
And what's that thing at which you're good?
You need to share it. Yes, you should!
For when you do what you do well
both you and we find joy!
