Nielsen's Rating

For Leslie--and don't call him Shirley
success would come late and not early
By playing it straight
made comedy great
At least he was tops with yours surly

Actor Leslie Nielsen at Lt. Frank Drebin in the Naked Gun Series and in Forbidden Planet (1956), with Jack Kelly and Warren Stevens.

I missed it if Late Late Show ran it
A view time, I'll just have to plan it
I know I'll be hit
but have to admit
I've never seen "Forbidden Planet"

This movie you've never perused?
My dear Mr.Knott you're excused
Completists may try
but some films get by
If not, their sore eyes would be bruised
