Quietly he lay in the casket


A tribute to a local actor.

Quietly he lay in the casket
For he had just kicked the bucket
Stricken for the last few months
Looking gaunt and tired.

Friends asked if he was alright
Alright he was, as he said
Oh, I just have the flu
And don’t have much appetite.

The murderous cells replicated
Like a flaming bonfire
And soon he’s saying his goodbyes
To those who knew enough to drop by.

His life has just flashed past
Much like the reeling spools
Of videos and movies collecting dust
Out of which the nostalgic pull.

There they sat watching
Reruns of his glorious days
Where he played the leading man
And put his acting chops on display.

And now that he is gone
Everyone was lamenting
The stealthy, sad passing
Of yet another showbiz icon.

  2. mmm the procession passed by my office the other day, and all the staff applauded in tune to the contributions he made to the local media scene. though I dont follow local media that much, it was heartening to witness something like that
