Heath Ledger In Loving Memory


22nd of January 2008
Tuesday afternoon
Soho, New York
Heath Ledger was 28
Found dead
At the foot of his bed

From Perth to Sydney
From Sydney to Hollywood
You was extremely inspirational to many
Acting with a great aplomb and too good
To be true
That you were gone


Sweat it beautifully
Becomes part of the Patriot
Crossed over the continent
And right to Brokeback Mountain
For some, it’s just hurt
The Oscar was the only abstinence
Distinguished you from the legends

Portraying The Joker in Dark Knight
Seemingly you got it right
Your latest works in Imagination of Doctor Parnassus
Will be the last
But not least

You’re down to earth and generous
Kind hearted and life loving
Would be longing
By fans across
Perth homeboy
Your famous remark
“The only thing that’s got to me
Where I’m sitting now is my instincts and my impatience”
Well, were the sleeping pills
Your alternative
To end all these?
Tell that
To Matilda Rose
Please

The firste stock-father of gentleness,

Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
