Movin' - Poem by Oscar Robles

George Jones said He Stopped loving Her today
Johnny Cash sang Come on Get Rhythm,
June Carter wrote Johnny Ring of Fire,
Merle Haggard did his best in prison.

The Rolling Stones are still Rockin
After 50 long years,
AC/DC still electrifies the house,
While drinking some ice cold beers.

Elvis has been gone a long long time,
And the Great Jimi Hendrix too.
The Beatles rocked from across the sea,
Kurt Cobain took his life all from feeling blue.

John Candy made us die of laughter,
Chris Farley was there at the top.
Richard Pryor would say some crazy things
That would make our Blessed Pope drop.

For those that lasted and those that did not,
They all did something special for us
Their lives and passion we bought.

Keep their memories in mind,
For whatever you are doing,
Whatever it is these Great people did,
It will always keep us Moving.

    This is great! Kind of nostalgic, and I really like the message. I think you meant to write 'Kurt' instead of 'Kirk' though. Great poem! :) (Report) Reply
