THE LEGENDS ARE DROPPING LIKE FLIES

Folder: 
MEANDERTHAL MAN

 

the legends

are dropping like

flies

 

I say this

with sorrow

and trepidation

 

but it’s reality

nonetheless

like it or not

 

Stevie Ray Vaughan, Art Blakey.

Miles Davis, Gene Roddenberry,

Frank Zappa, Albert Collins,

Sun Ra, Dizzy Gillespie,

Charles Bukowski, Jerry Garcia

 

the legends

are dropping
and we’ve yet

to find suitable

replacements

 

It fills me

with sorrow

looking on

at the role call

of fallen warriors

 

the legends,

near legends

and honorable mentions

are dropping

 

and in the place

is a void;

a void we must fill

on our own

 

and that just seems

like a really large task

something we may not

be up to

see, I told you it didn't start with Bowie in 2016
