Late night searching

Of the radio dial

In the darkness

Seeking sleep

Ever elusive

Radio sounds

Sometimes bring the haze

With talk shows

Preachers crying in the night

Golden oldies

But tonight came the news

Of the “Great One”

Gone in the night

“To the moon, Alice, to the moon”

Just a day after we lost

The Dancing Man

“One of these days, Alice . . .”

The “Great One” and “The Dancing Man”

Not good times

For the old ones

The honeymoons over

The honeymooner’s gone
