Well, it’s really here. The last episode of All My Children will be Friday, September 23. Sure there were the occasional story line problems, ultra politically correct episodes, and unrealistic situations; but it provided a great escape for 60 minutes. I plan to enjoy it with a Diet Coke, box of Cheese Its, and a box of tissue.
Good-bye my pal, All My Children.
So long laughs, loves, and all that sin.
Good-bye Erica, Dixie, Crystal and Tad.
Jake, Jackson – it’s makes me so sad.
Adios Opal, Ryan and selfish Greenlee,
Kendall, Zack, Jessie, and blind Angie.
You saw me through pregnancies and two babies-
I felt so normal next to all your crazies.
Running on the treadmill wasn’t a chore.
With you in the video player, I just wanted more.
I’ve watched you some 30 of your 41 years.
You made me laugh and even shed some tears.
I still remember Uncle Palmer and Aunt Phoebe.
I hope you find Babe and Angie will see.
The affairs, evil twins, dead come back to life-
Will Erica ever again be Jackson’s wife?
I heard we might soon become online friends-
But I’m hoping All My Children will rise once again!
