A Tribute to Michael Jackson

By Dennis A. Dames

King of popular music

…master of the big stage

Entertainer extraordinaire

…with deep and wide appeal

 

Michael Jackson, the cultural icon

…transcended all barriers with approval

Universally treasured

…a rare talent undying

 

Tears for a fallen star…

…travelling gloriously beyond

Celebration for his inestimable gifts

…peoples love Michael Jackson

 

A revolutionary in song…

…an activist of note

A generation pleased

…with the masterful virtuoso

 

Michael Jackson, the spirit of groove

…his music of verve

…wakes up the dead

Moonwalking the will…

…paving the way

Eliminating the barriers

...of discrimination

…one prized piece at a time

 

His unifying music

…consolidative and curative

Thank you Michael for it all

Sleep well my brother

…we shall met again

…in timeless elation

 

Until then, the king of pop reigns

…in our distinct hearts

With celebrated admiration and awe

…forever prized and sanctified
