in 1961...

Posted to Haiku Board




my brother he came
with the news he will be
a daddy

and next week marry
so the baby would get
a mom and a daddy

nineteen-sixty-one
she loved you yeah yeah
with a love like that

and you changed
your drum set to family cares
money-making

dear jazzman brother-
beloved Beatle George
rest you both in peace

the beat in your music
pulse of life, oh the sixties
when life and love was free

all we need is love
still now

(my brother died 1967
in a car accident
while returning from
a business trip)
