The 27 Club

Do you want to be a member of the 27 club? - When one asks, Like snakes hidden beneath leaves - dying at 27 - its grim face masks; Gifted, skilled, artistic and masterly are its members, Musicians, stars, celebrities... all gold gone through embers...! Robert Leroy Johnson, American Blues musician, Died drinking poisoned whisky, loon-like, losing cognition; Brian Jones, wood-thrush, British multi-instrumentalist, Lived introvert; died drowning, like a sentimentalist...! Alan Wilson, Jimi Hendrix, Deve Alexander, Jim Morrison, Joplin, Kurt Cobain... all known for candor; Drug-alcohol-abuse, homicide, suicide, mishap, Easily to wrath of mistimed death, they did get enwrap...! Amy Winehouse, one of youngest of Club Twenty Seven, Singer, lyricist...! Has she gone to hell or to Heaven...? Alcohol poison! Like many others, a millionaire! I don't want to die, she said. Did death hear her last prayer...? Discouragements and depressions that lead to mental-kick, Hopelessness, helplessness, anxieties... all makes them sick; Dry branches hold to trees; holding to divine they could live; Premeditated sins and evils - will heavens forgive...? 12 September 2022 The 27 club Poetry Contest Sponsored by: Anthony Biaanco

Strong poem for the competition. I wanted to try this challenge so badly, but I am honestly at a loss for words

You have certainly shown why it's no honor to be a member of this club... I'm 72 years old, which is 27 backward. Hope there's no other connection there! :) gw

All that talent gone. I often wonder, if there is a price to pay. Interesting poem, Christuraj.
