Jimmy, Jimmy

you are the one.

You make being

a detective

look like

so much fun.


Angel may involve

you in an escapade.

You'll get him

out of the mess,

but you'll never

get paid.


We know being

a real detective

can be

 quite boring.

But when we

watch "Rockford"

you'll never

catch us snoring.

One of the best TV series...helped no end by the engaging world-weary performance of its star James Garner, who I recall equally fondly for his performance as Brett Maverick years before this famous private eye series came along. Answerphones have never had so much good publicity!! I can understand your glee about having your poem sent to the man himself. I felt the same way when the subject of my poem "Dambuster" asked if he could submit it to the famous WW2 RAF squadron's museum.
Good for you!!
N.B. Shouldn't "quiet" be "quite" in line 16?
