James Dean

James Dean an MGM dream 
Sprawls unseen towards the door
Tipping his hat Hello Mama and that 
He shuffles his shoes to the floor

Shakespeare a play McBeth he should say
a dagger towards his hand
His glasses allow great gaze over brow
a method actor's clap on demand

Due East of Eden a mother was bleeding
Stole comfort from drink and the bottle
James and his Porsche a destinal course 
His life measured speed through the throttle

The black suited man from oil in the sand 
A cattleman's stock to re-brand 
Rivals those two rebellious crew  
A Giant a legend of land 

A swerve and a shout a policeman drives out
There James who is slumped near at hand
Ascensional  dream rise up from this scene 
A teenager and rebel most grand
