Ode to John Hughes, Film Director

Midwestern parodist
with roots in
National Lampoon

Acid wit
Big feelings

Geeks conquer all
and learn valuable
often merry in scope.

And dancing--
always with the dancing.

I, your target demographic
laugh and forehead-slap
with all that teen-age
melo-drama and fervent emotion

You got to me
got to us
and went out on a high note
(despite Curly Sue)
leaving us so very soon.
