Cashman - My Starman

.................................................A
                                               MAN
                                            THE MAN
                                     AN AMERICAN HERO
                           A TRUE COUNTRY MUSIC HERO
WORE BLACK FOR THE BEATEN DOWN ON THE POOR SIDE OF TOWN 
                    WITH A RING OF FIRE AND A POCKET OF PILLS
                           A LIFE OF ROCK & ROLL AND THRILLS
                             WALKED THE LINE FOR ALL TO SEE
                                SOMETIMES SO IMPERFECTLY
                         JOHNNY,TO YOU LET US NOW APPLAUD 
                        FOUGHT YOUR ILLS AND TURNED TO GOD
                   A VOICE LIKE GRAVEL AND THUNDER COMBINED
THE MAN IN BLACK'S GONE! BUT JOHNNY!......YOU WERE SO REFINED
                          SO THIS STAR I WILL PIN ON YOU
                                  YOUR"RE MY SHERIFF
                                        AND MY HERO
                                            MISSING

    Hi William, This is excellent! This form is considered (CONCRETE POETRY) If you go to the left hand side of the home page under RESOURCES, you will find FORMS OF POETRY, click on it and under C, you will find (concrete). Well done. Lainie
