Ode to My Understudy

An Ode to My Understudy

Dear understudy this I write to make you understand

That I'm the actor with the job that you are trying to land

It might sound rather brutal to someone who doesnt know

But noone except me would know the lenghths to which you'd go

I know you’d kill to do this part,but didn’t realise

That killing me to get the role had actually crossed your mind

I understand it must be hard for an actress who is older

But please refrain from being the Grim Reaper at my shoulder

I know you have frustrations yes you’ve made them very clear

But airing them in front of me is not a wise idea

You see the more you moan about the fact that you’ve been wronged

Just makes me even more determined to never let you go on

I’ll drag my bleeding limbs to work if that is what it takes

For nothing in the world would make me let you on that stage.


  1. Wow she actually said things in front you ? Ha stick it to her and show her how it's done!

  2. Blegh. I guess she's never heard the ole honey versus vinegar idea. Maybe hint that a bit of brown-nosing and coffee/chocolate runs wouldn't go amiss?

  3. I concur...I'd drag my bleeding limbs to work as well
