The Mayberry Poem – A Tribute to MayberryThe Mayberry Poem – A Tribute to Mayberry is a compilation of poetry about “The Andy Griffith Show” that celebrates the characters and the show that made millions of viewers laugh during the turbulent 60s as they watched the antics and friendships of the good people of Mayberry. The slim volume of poetry contains over 170 poems about Mayberry written by 58 different poets from 19 states as well as Washington, D.C. Each poem pays tribute to a character, episode, or theme from “The Andy Griffith Show” or simply honors the fictional town of Mayberry itself with its small-town values and simple “good ole’ days” way of life. The poems range from humorous limericks to thought-provoking verses about the things that still make Mayberry resonate with viewers today.
