Where have you gone, Johnny Cash? Poem by Paul the Lion


Where have you gone, Johnny Cash?
I and millions miss you

You stood for the blue collar man
You stood for the prisoner
You stood for the poor
You stood for the cowboy
You stood for the indian
You stood for peace
You stood for me, a Socialist

We need you today, Johnny Cash
More than ever

    Gripping. I just saw a guy on American Idol sing a Johnny Cash song, and then I saw this poem on the site. It just goes to show what an impression the strong and uncompromising can make. Excellent! (Report) Reply

    I believe this is where you are to go forth to take and make your stand.
