F. Scott & Zelda Fitzgerald's Story From Alabama to 1920's Paris
Salon of mean, that's all they saw
first whisper, then a glance
Perpetuity was all the rage
Young writers take a chance!

Chance brought the two together
Zelda and her northern lad
Zanie tow-heads on the Riviera
Believed to be quite mad!

Mad writers met in Paris
known there and throughout France
Stein, Hemingway, Dos Pasos
Gatsby not yet in the dance

Dance moonlight, Alabama
Long forgotten, useless war
Lost generation drinking
Literary future's final score

Score one for Scott Fitzgerald
resting in his Maryland grave
Dead at forty, too much liquor
A writing reputation saved!
