Michael Jackson, the Thriller, Died

Life is unfair
To those who dare
Life is cruel
To those who sit idle.

Black people die
White people die
Multiracial people die
Rich people die
Poor people die
Children cry
Adults sigh
With remorse
In front of the corpse.

The dancer, the mega-star can no longer fly,
The floor can no longer remain dry.
The mournful river has inundated the stage;
This is the final curtain, the last page
Of a sad story of Cinderella,
Who drowned after falling in a deep coma.

Beautiful people die
Eccentric people die
Brown people die
Famous people die
No-name people die
And that's no lie.

The king died
The queen cried
All night long
Like a splenetic song
The whole world mourned
We are daily warned and scorned
By death
The thief who has the nerves to attack: the deaf
The sick, the young and the old
The exotic, the odd and the bold.

At 50, he died young,
Without playing the last song.
Death and life are unfair,
And farewell is never fair.
Michael will be missed,
May he rest in peace!

You ask for my refection; Herbert It is academic to know of life and mortality. We accept death and mourn for those we love and respect.Others become statistics. Michael was not the 'Thriller', rather a dancing, loving and spiritual 'Metaphor. Mis-understood and wrongly judged. All need discover his own written book filled with art, prose and poetry as I have long since and, be aware of whom they describe. All of creation will not rest in peace the while there's chaos on Earth. Controversies of religion and politics being on a collision course. Truly ye bards, should know of the loving and caring whom have been spiritually destroyed. in an effort to write an obituary Shalom. Love and Peace will prevail ...Louie Levy

Piece of great elegance bristling with insight. A highly philosophical poem, well articulated and beautifully penned. DUST TO DUST IS A MUST well depicted in the poem. Thanks for sharing and remain blessed. Also thanks for commenting on my poems.

A very touching and heartfelt poem. He thrilled the audiences old and young alike. We have yet to see another star like him. Yet he is another star in Heaven. A real thriller he was. Enjoyed.
