Ode to a Partridge - A Sonnet

Twixt Partridges and Bradys there's no doubt
That Shirley's gang  has claim to greater fame
But without Danny and Reuben's verbal bouts 
Both family bands might seem equally lame

The Partridge clan did boast a lovely sound
Of honeyed harmonies and dulcet tones
Though Bonaduce acted like a clown,
The day was saved by Keith (and Shirley Jones)

But all in all, one can't forget this fact
That proves their top hit records were all fake
Although they tried to put on a brave act
They leave this vivid image in their wake:

It's Danny Partridge with his freckled face
So ignorantly strumming on his bass.
