Epistle

(For Michael 
Jackson, 1958- 
2009)

Our hate for you 
was unbreakable
Because to many 
of us you were a 
heartbreaker
But your gift and 
stardom were 
invincible
Such that heaven 
can wait

At your death 
break of dawn
I remained so 
speechless
I wept: gone too 
soon
I saw Blood on the 
dance floor

Your life and death 
remain a thriller
Your absence 
makes me cry
Your 
disappearance to 
me is bad
I wanted to rock 
with you

Now, in your 
absence, I just 
can't stop loving 
you
My wish: I want 
you back
To be working day 
and night
I want you to be 
the man in the 
mirror

Alas! I weep for a 
childhood
I wish you were 
given one more 
chance
But this time not 
with a dirty diana
Who is it? You 
may ask

If you're given a 
second chance
You should brace 
yourself and give 
in to me
You should hold 
my hands
Because now I 
don't care if you're 
black or white

Your childhood 
was that of the 
lost children
Always kept in the 
studio of privacy
Always threatened 
by a lord
But now you're 
not alone, I'm with 
you

Your absence 
makes me 
remember the time
Every minute the 
way you make 
me feel
When Janet and 
you made a 
scream
Just like a smooth 
criminal

Now I wanna be 
starting something
Will you be there? 
I wish
Because whatever 
happens
I'd be a stranger in 
Moscow

To cork the glass
Your earth song is 
superb
Perhaps some a 
time in the future
I'll appreciate; 
she's out of my life

From Billie Jean to 
Beat it and beyond
Your human 
nature was of 
butterflies
Never stopping til 
you get enough
Because your 
passion was more 
than 2000 watts

To pop you said:
You are my life
One funny thing; 
to the Liberian girl,
You said: don't 
walk away

With your 
dangerous
You made a stage 
jam
I wish'd I'd be 
there
On the stage with 
you

With your heal the 
world
You rock my world
Letting me know 
that
We are the world

You let me know 
something
That stars are 
always above
Even in the tomb, 
they are backbitten
By folks, they 
don't really care 
about us

With love and 
affection
From your brother 
his good passion
Much love your 
highness
I doff. Dear King 
Mike.
