The African Queen

by Rebel Jim

Bogart and Hepburn were awesome,
John Houston's directing was fine.
But to me the real star of the movie was...
Bogart's steam powered boat, the African Queen

Although she was quite aged and battered,
the journey they made proved that she still mattered.

When they finally caught up with the enemy.
they used her to end the tyranny.

She went out in flames,
the married Allnuts lives she did save.

And Bogart won his only Oscar!
