King of Pop...

King of Pop...

Maybe quite a controversial piece, but I stand by it 🀘🎢

King of Pop...

It's funny how people are so quick to judge,
The rich making money with a wink and a nudge,
But if one commits perjury, surely they should be locked away,
Instead, make a "shocking" documentary and get a quick payday.

He was, the king of pop,
His music will go on, not stop!
He was hounded by the paparazzi,
At the end of the day, he was found not guilty!Β 

When he was here to defend himself, he was found not guilty,
People watch these programmes and think it's based on reality,
So let's judge!Β 
Let's not!Β 
Let's manipulate without proof,
Let's not!Β 

Key witnesses on the stand, they swore to tell the truth and nothing but,
They obviously lied, but money has dried up, another million should be enough,
Starstruck fans, or obsessed with stardom,
Parents and all, chose this, instead of wisdom.

Shock sells,
Shock sells!
Can nobody see the pattern, of this couch potato hell?
Sit down!
Sit down!Β 
Get the popcorn! Let's condemn the singer who's under ground.

He was, the king of pop,
His music will go on, not stop!
He was hounded by the paparazzi,
At the end of the day, he was found not guilty!Β 

This is not right, but it's another show that blinds us to what on earth is going on,
When it counts, people have their blinkers on but still sang his number 1 songs,Β 
Do we watch and listen to others projecting their money story,
Should we read the facts, because quite frankly, all these lies are boring.

Hello Wayne...

​​​​​​I find it hard to believe that anyone would complain if they were fondled by M.J.

Please!

They wish!!

That gentle soul was a patsy for his family of course, people are going to make claims...

People want their 15 minutes of fame because, what they lack in talent and character they certainly need money and the easy way is to cheat and lie and write a Book...

Great write!

Thank you for sharing...

Hugs...

Your dead right Wayne and I'm sure there are millions of people who agree with you, I will listen to his words, his inspiring voice, I will play his music for my daughter, I loved Micheal Jackson, his energy and love will always live on.

Great piece Wayne.

Hi Wayne....I think it is a sad world that people will do anything to get money and I too believe Michael Jackson's name was smeared with intent to gain financial gain...He seemed to be such a kind soul who never felt he could fit in and his fame only heightened his pain.Β  He was a creative genius.Β  Great tribute and awareness write.Β  He is missed. xo ;)Β

Hello Wayne...

Do you really believe he's dead or did he have to be dead?

He didn't have a choice, and I don't blame him at all...

I remember exactly what I was doing when I heardΒ  he died and I said way to go Michael...Β 

Brilliant!!

I didn't blame him then and I don't blame him now...

As far as the Doctor he was probably ready to retire anyway...

😊

He knew what he was getting himself into...

When someone is cornered and everyone wants a piece of you no one knows what they would do in that position...

If I knew I was innocent and that happened to me I don't know whatΒ  I would do...

I'd be scared as hell, and they could and probably would kill you in jail or you'd have to spend it in Protective Custody...

Wherever he is may he be in peace!

Hugs again...

You're spot on! Micheal had a bad child hood and so liked to relive his lost days in his adult life.Β  People mocked him and judged him for it.Β  Called him a weirdo and said he did all those things! Why because he was different, eccentric? Its a total farce, especially when he can't even defend himself anymore.

Dear Wayne,. I wholeheartedly agree that he is the king of pop and I am still mesmerized when watching him!Β  An old boss once told me that gossip is always 99% not accurate and people believe the first story hear.Β  I was sceptical until I experienced it first hand.Β  It wasΒ  a very painful experience which made me see things differently.Β  I love your boldness and agree.Β  Terry Kay

I think MJ was a lost soul. Β Much like Elvis and Prince. Β I don’t know what the truth is but I do know there were a lot of vultures digging in his pockets

We'll never know what the truth is, but we'll sure get the different opinions of what he supposed to had done, we just never know, most probable, but we can't say, so why do, people say?Β

There is much speculation that Lewis Carroll was a pediophille. Β 
I don’t know about either. Β However one can appreciate the art even if it turns out a monster created it. Β I don’t know about MJ. Β He was a talented person who was very troubledΒ
