Mandy Patinkin admired from afar.
As Che in Evita the consummate star.
With your “Criminal Mind” you gave Chicago such Hope.
As Carrie’s Saul Berenson you widened her scope.
The Homeland would be safer if you exposed the truth.
With your focus on song, your loyalty strong.
You could sing from any page from The Book of Ruth.
No walk in The Park on a “Sunday Afternoon.”
You broadened our view as Seraut with his brush.
The regulars gathered round in silence and hush.
In awe as Che sang to Eva Perron.
Ah! But our breath was taken,
As Avigdor to Anshel you starred.
Never disputed you had us at Talmudic.
Yes, all of us from wide and from far.
Inigo Montoya you blew us away.
Show us your hand with six fingers, please do.
Took us Over the Rainbow left hope from the start.
From there we won’t sway,
You’ve stolen our Heart!
