Another death

another death of another someone who was on TV, familiar face back then,
disappeared under a raft of rumours, sneaky suspicions and solicitous tittle tattle…

…someone said he was working for the government, devising ways to lengthen the day,

…rumours of surgery and orgies
of court appearances and
bankruptcy

….the odd picture in a paper, so out of focus, you couldn’t really tell who it was anyway

dying with a different face from the one you were born with, isn’t how everyone wants to go

to be remembered
surely
that’s all you could want?
