Original

I was an extra in a night scene
in a movie about Jake and Elwood.

My scene got cut.

I was head and shoulders
above the crowd.

There were no horses.

I quit counting takes
when I ran out of fingers.

The cavalry rescued no one.

There was no issue
with stage bullets or real bullets.

A cameraman tripped and broke a lens.

Onsite the morning after
I found a broken pair of sunglasses.
