Oh Wama Wiki!!!!

I reproduce verbatim
But I want to puke because nowhere
on this wiki page for MAMMA MIA!
Does it mention The Golden Spur
A novel by Dawn Powell,
written when
the Abbas were barely born.

If the novel were a pair of shoes,
Think only of the left shoe.

It is as if years later,
Catherine Johnson & ABBA
wore the other shoe
and took full credit for
designing the full footwear.

Mamma Mia! is a stage musical written by British playwright Catherine Johnson, based on the songs of ABBA, composed by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, former members of the band. The title of the musical is taken from the group's 1975 chart-topper "Mamma Mia". Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson, who composed the original music for ABBA, were involved in the development of the show from the beginning. Anni-Frid Lyngstad has been involved financially in the production and she has also been present at many of the premieres around the world. The musical includes such hits as "Super Trouper", "Lay All Your Love On Me", "Dancing Queen", "Knowing Me, Knowing You", "Take A Chance On Me", "Thank You for the Music", "Money, Money, Money", "The Winner Takes It All", "Voulez Vous" and "SOS". Over 42 million people have seen the show, which has grossed $2 billion dollars worldwide since its 1999 debut. A film adaptation starring Meryl Streep, Colin Firth, Pierce Brosnan, Amanda Seyfried, Christine Baranski and Julie Walters was released in July 2008.

The  Wiki page for MAMMA MIA
Is triple the length shown here.
But here is where I think New Yorkers prove
They are not really that smart.
The only "New Yorker" who would
Know about the POWELL factor
Works in New Jersey.
His name is Caryl Hobbes.
