Dear Michael,
the man with a child's heart -
I want you back.
You were still a pretty young thing.
No longer will you shake your body;
you were not unbreakable.
The way you make me feel
is like there ain't no sunshine now.
I cry lonely teardrops
in the closet
because you rock my world.

When I die and go to heaven, will you be there?
Some might have called you a smooth criminal,
but that's just human nature.
Everybody's somebody's a fool.

I think you are there,
your presence was enough to heal the world.
You were certainly not bad -
you were a lovely one,
better than dirty Diana who everyone mourned.
Yes, you got to be there,
Heaven or hell, regardless, when I come of age, and die,
I wanna be where you are.



Please feel free to place my poem in your signature to mourn Michael Jackson's death.

Please remember to credit me as the writer though.

Possibly two dumb questions, but:

1) Do you know who Tim Key is?
2) Did you hear him in "From Fact to Fiction" on Radio 4 recently?

I like the poem, by the way.

Tim Key is one of my favourite poets.

Unfortunately I missed his Radio 4 show.

Sorry about the long face, I am so upset.

Thank you for liking my poem.

better than dirty Diana.
So, you attempt to mourn one person's death by insulting another dead person?

Who are you to call Princess Diana 'dirty'? People could easily heckle Michael Jackson as 'dirty' due to the pedophilia allegations, but most do not - out of respect for the dead. I suggest you edit that bit out, it totally destroys the concept of your piece.

Oh, and your poem is amateur at best.

At the time I genuinely did want to leave forever. But then I realised that some threads are actually rather helpful and insightful for me! So why the hell should I go just because of some douchebags and a cuplathree negs lol?I Anyways I'm gonna stop being such a tit and be on here much less from now on. There's no way I could go the whole summer with just facebook when I'm at home, bored with jack poop to do. Sorry for effectively lying to you. After I slept on it (lool - sounds quite sad don't it) my decision altered.

Plus how could I resist such a delightfully pretty young girl such as yourself :p:

oh ok
so its ok what Hitler did, because he's dead
can't criticize Saddam Hussains antics, it wouldn't be fair because he's dead now

not quite sure i see the logic there

Nice straw man argument there, a total fallacy on your behalf.

You can attempt to debate the pragmatics of that sentence, in such an infantile manner; however, you are fully aware that I did not intend Adolf Hitler and Saddam Hussein to be inclusive within such a notion. I wouldn't consider monsters to be human beings, so I personally wouldn't classify them as 'the dead', which is a figure of speech generally reserved for members of the human race.
