(34) Three Kings

(34) Three Kings

A Poem by Chris Smith Welshpoetcs

There were so many singers that could have been in the poem, John Lennon, Hendrix etc.....So many Kings of music have passed our way.

There is a bar high up in the sky
That only sells water and no rye
So come on in, and take a seat
This is where three kings come to meet

Then the stage will be made clear
They sing new songs for the Angels to hear
Finishing together with a song called Salvation
The Angels cheer and give a standing ovation

Holly then sings of ways that are true
A beautiful voice up in a sky of blue
And when he stops and must now part
I can feel it raining in my heart

So Presley takes his turn to sing
Telling us of fools rushing in
Music backed from a heavenly band
I wish they could hear it down in dixie land

Jackson is  last to take the stage then
Not one dry eye when he sings about Ben
Entertains everyone and they are dancing along
Then he ends with a beautiful earth song

If you listen carefully, you can hear them up there
Way up high, in a bar in the sky somewhere
So I know the music that Heaven brings
When together they sing, the three kings

Makes you wonder who the heirs and successors to the throne are. Or has the world been orphaned of a depth and character of creativity... my hopeful heart chooses to believe that there is light in the darkening horizon.

A beautiful and hopeful poem. Buddy Holly was the only one who had a Ok life. Poor Presley and Jackson had their struggles at the end. Too many people judging instead of asking what do you need? Their stories should be examples of why we need not to be negative. People need kindness. Not abuse. I hope you are right. I like to hear some good music one day from these three men. A outstanding poem.
