I just came across a website that features a poem I wrote about Freddie Mercury, way back in 2001 (or maybe even earlier!) Here’s the link to the site (scroll down past the discography): http://www.hotshotdigital.com/WellAlwaysRemember/FreddieMercuryDisco.html
Or just read here!
The Show Must Go On!
by Mary Anne Christiano (copyright 2001)
news of the world/made sad
fans of old (and new ones too)
those songs/wore the grooves to the bone
a vocalistic promenade
a charmed delight!
i watched you prance about on the Midnight Special
a Harlequin in a grand parade
School girl dreams evoked in many (those naughty diary entries!)
sought tidbits in Circus and Creem magazines
Mega Rock Star of my restless youth
Time turned you into my dear dear friend
i never met you,
yet all fondness remains
much more than a memory
you’re still the Champion
Show Must Go On!
