    Trophy Points:
    Neapolitan Novels
    Told over 60 Years
    May leave you with
    Healthy Dose of Tears

    Flowers need Water and Sun
    Education needs Time and Love
    Along with Childhood
    Memories, Friends and Fun

    A Year Comes, A Year Goes By
    People never Fail to Celebrate
    By throwing Firecrackers
    In the Sky

    Beauty is only Skin-Deep
    Who says a Poor, Dark girl
    Cannot get Riches
    And the man of her Dreams

    Lotus grows in the Mud
    When Lotus is Betrayed
    It feels as if She were
    Slapped With a Big Thud

    The Boys from school
    Who attacked Girls with Rocks
    Now provide a Shoulder to Cry on
    And Cleans her Child's Socks

    Education sharpens the Mind
    But it Cannot Save a Person
    Who Stabbed a Loved one
    From Behind

    Money buys you Respect
    But it cannot give you
    Comfort when you are
    Away from a loved one,
    Whom society failed
    To Protect

    HBO Series: Scene from "My Brilliant Friend", Post WWII, Naples, Italy
