he is leaving home

                            
                  In great respect of the band I grew up listening to
                       as sure as Mom passed down Saturday Chores 
                      for I had been chosen to scrub bathroom floors `

                    Yet a familiar sound would bring me to keep scrubbing
                       The red album, The blue album , The White album 
                        Then .. Abbey Road , always remembering the sad look on
                  Ringo's face ,  something hard to understand underneath~
                       
                      I get it now, what you were saying all those years ago ,
                    the many sad lonely tears , secret tears , secret fears 
                    For Maxwell's Hammer was a real one . It wanted silence

                    Going back ..remembering when John Lennon died 
                      I was in Arkansas saddened with the world .
                      Then seeing his face saying " Drag isn't it " 
                      No .. this was not my hero in music and song .

                      he was a stand in hired William , he filled his shoes 
                      bringing diversity to create so much beautiful music from loss

                       One left standing , alone;; grief struck on back cover ~
                       The other identity hidden, tried to be part of ..coming together
                                                                                                                                                                        
                            his  world of secrets
                        He to suffers today , in fear , Faul~
                       
                        Too many years gone by .let us tell the Truth. Let us be free
                         The very sad long and winding Road ~
                         Let us Bury our real Paul. 

                         No more " Mystery tour "
                             No more fear 
                                Let him be in peace ~


           Inspired by " The Last Testament of George Harrison , Is Paul Dead ? "

You need to order it , "Is Paul Dead ? The last testament of George Harrison " well worth it ! It sent chills up my spine ! It was out last year , then quickly removed from the shelves .. It is an account of when George was attacked in the hospital , He had his wife come in with a recorder , for he thought he was dying , and many say ..it was the attack that did take his life later.

Thank-you Sandra ! It is a bit controversial , If you do ordered the movie , you will see how it inspired me ! I suggest any poet , writer , lover of Beatles watch "is Paul Dead ? The Last testament of George Harrison " Too many written song lyrics ...by lennon.

I can see you are a big fan, Shanity. I don't really understand about Paul. I even heard a rumor that there was another Ringo going around saying he was the real one instead of the one in Hollywood! Anyway, good writing and congrats for your win.

I always say to the highest skeptic , order the movie "is Paul Dead ? The last Testament of George Harrison " There is another movie by Martin Scorsese m, George 1 & 2 . This is a film made during his hospital attack , when he thought he was dying.

I will DEFINITELY have to order this movie now Shanity...Congrats on a fine win - Tim

Oh , you do need to order, again ..it was taken off the shelves very quickly as it came out , then Martin Scorsese did, George 1 and 2 . This is a tape that was recorded by "Sure sounds like G.H. to me, in the Hospital , and if true , is one of the most amazing rock hidden secrets ever ~

Yes ! The DVD will chill your bones " Is Paul Dead ? " even if you don't believe , why would John Lennon & George go to that extreme to say what they said !
Date: 9/17/2013 12:44:00 PM
WOW! This is amazing! I remember all of this and I love the way you remember it as well....Well done dear poet! As Always, Shar
