John Wayne Brown - Part IV

Even though you did me wrong, I've written a few poems about you.

You came in my house and stole some pills, that was a bad thing to do.

You also borrowed some money but didn't repay what you owed.

Sadly, you can't celebrate this Christmas because you died half a year ago.

This will be the first Christmas since 1969 that you're not alive.

You died six months ago today, you weren't able to survive.

You had a heart murmur but half a year ago, your heart stopped beating.

When it came to death, it was something you had no chance of defeating.
