RIP David Bowie

bowie_aladin_sane_1000pxRIP DAVID BOWIE

Time has changed him

But he can’t change time.

Now he’s stardust and ashes to ashes

A spaceboy he remains

Till the universe crashes.

They gather in Brixton,

A pilgrimage to the Bowie shrine.

‘What did he mean to you?’

Asks the man with the mike,

‘never be afraid to act yourself’

Answers the face of Aladdin Sane,

Bowie’s irony drips like rain.
