RIA, Johnny Ray Allen
Dying is the forever goodbye:
Won’t you grow old disgracefully with me?
The ‘dude has left for the Heavenly Chorus.
Come on, sing: “Need Somebody!”
I’m too far from Annunciation.
And Lucky’s out chasing the cat.
Channeling a primitive streak:
Hey! Johnny Ray! Whereyaat?!
Our band’s lead engineer.
Come on, the amp’s on ten.
We all loved you somethin’ dear!
[Rest In Awesome!]
