The sun was shining on that cold winters day  The handsome couple smiling as bystanders waved  The long black limo with the top taken off Was being escorted by motorcycle cops  A man up high took careful aim  In a few short seconds our world would change  When it was over The King was dead  The final shot, hit him in the head  I think most would agree if you took a poll  That the last shot was from the grassy knoll  If you buy the lone gunman you're one of a few  Why not meet me in Brooklyn I have a bridge I'll sell you

Great poem in a few lines, John. Lone gunman, right ..... Have watched many shows on this topic. Info is hidden.We will never know. Life was so different then. Newscasters were decent folks. They reported on events, not create fairy tales or out to destroy. They create hate.Had enough of people hurting others who don't think like them, trying to kill free speech. Panagiota

Hoover, Dulles, Nixon, Johnson, Giancana, Cuban hit squards, Texas oil men, and so on and so on... He didn't stand a chance. Thanks for your comment Panny
