My bones were once lighted with stars,
and with God given ass; making love
my fingers caressed your careless guitars.
I foresaw what humanity sowed
but I gave shit, injecting my veins
with poison and to the poems I bowed
to the young ones, my lunatic fans.
But when spiders delivered through flames
are eating your liver, I am gone.
The embers of fire is lost, I’m leaving
and you’re lost to the coldness of space
I’m Ziggy and now I won’t be long
as Lazarus never will raise from his bed
on the day of my execution
the stars have turned black for my song,
and somewhere forever a wardrobe is closed
Today we have KB at dVerse who wants us to write a persona poem, and what better than to use the persona Ziggy Stardust. Coming to save the earth he got absorbed into sex drugs and rock&roll… Now the voice of David Bowie is silent for ever… here is last video if you haven’t seen it.
