R.I.P. Micheal Joeseph Jackson

Just the other day, the world lost an icon, a forgotten inspirationist, destined to walk the moon's stage, ever since the day he was born 

His tour was backwards, sliding behind users, a self-proclaimed bastard, self proclaimed king of pop, dancing with a soul torn

Plastic surgeries an urgency, Katherine, it's too late now

Deep in your heart you had to know, Joe Boxer was wrong, we'll never know how

We'll never know how a mother could watch the abuse of her family, happen right before her very own eyes, success through tragedy

Ray and Charles, Oh, A-B-C, it's easy as 1-2-3

I want'cha back but when he was here, we all was saying Fuck Him, he's no longer black to me

Now that's he's gone, everybody want's to blame it on the boogie

Comparisons to Elvis, the king of pop is gone to soon

It hurts as if I lost a brother, I grew up watching you

In the end, no one cares, in another week, the Thriller

will be old news

It's crazy, unconciously who'd have thought, Mike would die before you

I always thought of him as Peter Pan, thought he'd live forever

I'm 37, how foolish is that thought, for a grown many to think never

Instead of focusing in on the overdosing by way of his pain medications

Think about the music that pushed him into his delibitating persuasion

To be so popular and famous, everybody wanting a piece of all you've gained

The way she makes me feel, the most recognized man in the world

underneath, attracted to universal shame

Crouch grabbing was a way to be kicked out of the game, they all loved him even more, ooooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, the man in the mirror was going for change

I guess he found what he was looking for, demoral injection, by personal physician's judgement was so poor

Or could it be Micheal knew the consequence, just couldn't take it anymore, so he let go, requested the shot

Now the debt he once owed is being paid for by the crying of our bleeding hearts

Fuck you Larry King for kicking Usher off the show because he wouldn't gossip about the man he performed with and was inspired by. Good job Usher for not letting him catch you out there like that. You too, Liza Manelli.
