The King Of Pop And The Little Tramp. - Poem by Gillian.E. Shaw

Hand in hand with the little tramp
they tripped the light fantastic
and blamed it on the boogie
shakin' their body down to the ground
'babe' fell from honeyed
through movement
time and place
ever changing face
loving us more
an occidental prince
who made, gave and saved
with the little tramp
they've got to be there
whatever happens...
tripping the light fantastic

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Dedicated to the memory of Michael Jackson. I wrote the poem after I'd watched a performance of 'Stranger in Moscow' from his History tour 1997. After he died I was amazed to find so much of his work on internet that I'd never seen or heard so was moved to write the poem; most of the lines in the poem are well known tracks of his.
