Where Were You?

Where were you when Farrah and Michael died? I remembered fighting through traffic and being startled by the news on the radio, At first, they reported that Michael was only unconscious and that Farrah had taken a turn for the worse, I looked out my car window and contemplated the heat rising from the asphalt on a sweltering Summer day, Somehow, the heat seemed insignificant as I wondered if the radio stations were spreading propaganda, In the midst of going to and fro, A double whammy happened unexpectedly, They both died..........., A childhood era had ended and life would never be the same without the Breck girl flashing her mane, The King of Pop could never be replaced, What would happen to music? It was all too much to embrace, Where were you when they both died? Probably like most people, sitting somewhere stunned, shocked, disillusioned and crying on the inside.
