The Celebrity - Poem by Francis Duggan

Though his fans in his lifetime in numbers did grow
I cannot shed a tear for one i did not know
And though he was one who had fans Worldwide
From the reaper of lives nowhere for him to hide
Of a drug overdose it is said he did die
The fact is he was born a mortal and fact never lie
A rock star in his mid fifties his fans are in tears
Though his songs and music will live on for decades of years
In his lifetime he challenged life's reaper and the reaper won
And his parents who are living do grieve for their son
His songs and his music for years may live on
But the greatest gift that he had from him has gone
I am talking of course about his gift of life
The father of ten children who never had a wife.
