King of Brews & News: In Memoriam


A lofty goal
it is, to make
the world turn
with your fingers

I, with pad
I, with phone;
demands for a
fifth one lingers

Gone is the
man, who loves
his family; more
than all of
his earthly wealth

Gone is the
man, a visionary
because an illness
took a toll
on his health


He is the
topic over a
cup of coffee,
he is the
King of Brews

His passing away
Spread widely throughout,
and made him
King of News



***




Steven Paul "Steve" Jobs (February 24, 1955 – October 5, 2011)

What a waste. The world still needs him. :[

I enjoyed how you gradually introduced, and never named, the subject of the poem. And the noble "Gone is the man" lines.

A nice tribute to Steve, who did indeed allow us to turn the world with our fingers. My Magpie 86 is Cepheus.
