[Insert Name Here] is Dead

After a meteoric rise
on infinite talent,
s/he spiraled downward
never matching
former achievements
or commercial success.
Wasteland years
of drugs and booze
ended today in tragedy.

We will never forget
our love and devotion
to this stellar performer
we mocked for years.

  1. Statement made…I’m sure felt my many. I think I like the non-direct inference
    of who what where and when.
    Thanks…something to think about for me…this way may say more than any other. Point made.
    Peace,
    Siggi in Downeast Maine
