    dotsCelebrity Parade of Death c. by ruejacobs 6/28/09dots
    -------------------------------------------


    They’re like little lightening strikes,
    These deaths
    Each one dropping from the sky
    A lark caught in midflight
    And hurled icarus-like to the pavement
    Zeus has been busy it would seem
    Gathered round the computer screens,
    Our faces blue in the light,
    We recited names like liturgies
    A roll-call of saints and demons
    The sacrificial lambs are smoking yet on the grill
    We add pineapple and onion
    Season the steaks a little more
    Salivate and eye the breaking news
    The tanist kings are torn asunder in the field with no mercy
    To satisfy the hungry maw of idle gods
    To satisfy each one of us

      one - i love the collage.

    two - celebrity death is odd. after all of this, i thought it interesting that mj's ex said (while being hounded by reporters)- walter cronkite died today, isn't that newsworthy? (or something to that effect).

    i suppose the morbid in me would have wanted to have been the ME for mj only because i am curious by nature. like, was his nose really a nose. bill mahr was horrible about it. though one of his guests said regardless of who the man was, he was a great entertainer.

    there have been so many dead of late. mostly i was saddend about kung fu guy. sheesh. or arturo gatti (he was one of the few fighters i actually liked. he had the heart of a lion).

    i will admit. i watched princess di's funeral. and i even cried when she died. seriously. i felt so bad for her boys.

    oh... and tupak too. (i thought he had great potential).

    not like you need to know all of this stuff...

    anyhoo...

    people are strange. people react differently. some can be brutal. some not so. it is simply a mad, mad, world. ya know.

    nonsensical enough??

      We kill what we adore with the precise logic of Nazi stormtroopers sipping wine at a cafe in a conquered nation. Then again, the unusual behavior of society's victims tends to mark them for extermination by the callous. Maybe that's what you surrender for fame.

      You are bloody right ... with the recent tragedy I've come to realize how callous people can be when it comes to death. I mean those [censored] meaningless programs on TV who seem to deem someone's demise a mere joke. And the sad thing is that they do all that because they want to satisfy the audience by saying nasty things even about the ones who have passed way which I happen to think is irredeemably unorthodox and harrowing, not that I'm an extremely religious person but I do hold utter respect for the dead and condemn those who do otherwise.

    Additionally,there's another reason for doing that
    which is money. People can do anything in order to get more and that does explain why some are so starkly inclined to do what you have allegedly exposed in your writing and what I'm reviling now.

    I like your write especially on account of the fact that I've been feeling the same thing these past few days and because I happen to think that it's was wonderfully-written and thought-provoking. I love the earnestness of the piece and was markedly fond of the deities support to strengthen the message being conveyed.

    Enjoyed this and I happen to be holding a flag so as to support what you have just said or what I have interpreted out of it ....

    warm regards,
    Ethan

      Hey.

    I think what i got from this is that people revel in the tragedy of others, especially more so in those we view of a perfect nature I.E. Movie stars, singers, royalty.

    You capture this in a beautiful manner, mostly exposing the darker side of human nature in a way that the masses would understand. Your words are a semi poetic manner though your imagery does not lack, in all this is very well written and to me very well thought out.

    wonderful job hon.
