Old words about Michael Jackson

I am still in shock a bit over MJ's death.
Here is an old post I wrote about him that kind of sums up the awe I have had for Michael Jackson and his art (7 reasons "Smooth Criminal" video and Michael Jackson's gang/gangster activities are awesome, as well as my anger at my brother for hording the red zippered MJ-like jacket).

Thriller was the first real album I owned (if you don't count the Mickey Mouse/Donald Duck one and the ones that you played on the system that also showed pictures on the bottom as you read through the book with the record) and I still love it. I have been rocking out each time I drive as radio stations are still paying tribute. When I go outside and hear a car drive by blasting one of his songs, I smile and almost break out in the moon walk.

Hopefully he will rest in peace, as his life here seemed so full of turmoil.

    Micheal Jackson
    by Shawn A.

    Physically, I’m fit
    But sexually, I’m split
    So rejected like shit
    I sink into my pit

    Hide behind my mask
    Give myself a task
    Water into a broken flask
    “Possible?” you ask

    No one understands
    From me so many demands
    From near or distant lands
    The labour of my hands

    So I sing and I dance
    To keep them in a trance
    From Singapore to France
    Till I’m pierced by a lance

    The lance is public hate
    Controversy and debate
    For I have no female mate
    They ponder upon my fate

    My childhood is all gone
    My face is white and worn
    Still I’m holding on
    Until I am reborn
