Smoki Bacon

Smoki always reminded me
A goombah
Grew up Italian
Brookline Village
Married a Brahmin
Ed Bacon
Hence
The amazing handle
Smoki Bacon
Brightest most sparkling
Hostess with mostest
Ed was a great guy
Kindah quiet and stoic
They hosted annual open house
Fairfield Street
Traditional Back Bay
Pre condo
Launched the social season
Right after Labor Day
Everyone was there
All factions of the city
Proper Bostonians
Journalists and politicians
Debutantes with playboys
Arts and culture
Do you know
Have you met
She would say
Working the rooms
As I told her
Evoking a hearty laugh
If death walked in
Smoki would say
Death this is Charles Giuliano
Charles Giuliano have you met death
