The Serious Moonlight Has Dimmed

Major Tom and Ziggy,
Became Thin White Dukes
So freaky hot, so suavely cool
So oddly apt, so perfectly strange
Undetached irony, singing carols with Bing
Following no one, setting the trends in motion
Made the best play their best, never settled for less
Our world is dimmer today, his light will be missed,
So long, old friend, time to raise up our glasses
And with choked voice and tears say thanks
For your mind, your soul, and your self
Your gifts will last longer than us
Our children will wonder why
We love you so, until they
Listen, then they’ll know.
Starman in the sky,
Goodbye.
