Fishing with Gandhi
Fishing with Gandhi: in which Danno,
from his widowed mother's wedding
does hitchhike home to San Francisco
in Hamlet's pickle, regretting
mom's fickle nuptials, and dad fresh dead.
When, dumb'd from birth or bumps on the head,
twins "Gil"denstern and "Roy"sencrantz
stop truck -- what luck! It's Danno's chance.
Meanwhile back in town, his yuppie mates,
pass time in bickering angst, and plan
a potluck welcome home for Dan.
When the pickup overheats, Dan waits.
The rest is comic, corndog, antic;
slapstick humor, not pedantic.
