King Richard Is Dead… Long Live The King

Updated: Jul 2


His words often rang

harsh and hurtful

but always seemed so true.

He made us take off

the rose colored glasses

to see the world and

yes – even ourselves,

as we really and truly were.

As is the case so often,

we never realized his genius,

his value, his courage

until far too late –

and now he’s gone.

He made us take off

the rose colored glasses

to see the world

and ourselves

as we really and truly were.

Gone but never forgotten,

The king is dead –

Long live the King.


King Richard you will be missed.

Peace,
