He fell to earth
giving us taste
of life on Mars
lost in time
just walking the dead

Screwed up eyes
screwed down hair
left a legacy
held in twisty talk
not in rock and role

Breaking news for decades
the unsung soundtrack of our lives
Catalytic master
at catching and spitting out

A working actor to the end
all is a stage -
windmills of reality
fight back

“So I turned myself to face me
Look up here - I’m in heaven”
