*The following poem/lyrics goes with my previous post about the great man himself, an inspiration to me since a child.

Robin Williams

Woke up this morning to
some terrible news
No doubt, another been taken
by the blues
The world according to
him was great
He had the hook, his
comedy his bait

(chorus)
Oh why, oh why did
he have to go
He still had much to give
and show
This the day that
comedy died

His anarchic humour a
whirlwind
From his days of Mork
and Mindy
This fisher king
will hunt no more
But dreams still yet
may come to the fore

(chorus)
Oh why, oh why did
he have to go
He still had much to give
and show
This the day that
comedy died

Now he’s saying good
morning at heaven’s gate
This madman, this genie
of comedy great
Maybe there will be
awakenings
From the insomnia
of depressive feelings?

(chorus)
Oh why, oh why did
he have to go
He still had much to give
and show
This the day that
comedy died

Robin McLaurin Williams July 21 1951 – August 11 2014
