Early Television Icons Are Dying 

Early television icons are dying:
Clarabell the Clown,
Tom Corbett, Space Cadet,
Roger Manning.
I was in love with Judy Tyler,
Princess Summerfall Winterspring.
She died horribly in a car accident.
I later learned she was a young woman
of bad behavior
and was compulsively promiscuous.
They replaced her with a puppet.
-- Michael Wurster
