Prince ( 7/6/56- 21/4/21) - Sign of the Times, R.I.P

On the airwaves, sent out rap, house, funk, psychedelia, one man soul train, strutting sexy stuff, musical textures of freedom, Hendrix, Sly Stone, James Brown, an eclectic musical virtuoso, his brain an inner studio, of deep funk devotion, innovator of musical  genius, an ego that electrified,with duality of free expression,  today's  forecast  cloudy with a chance of purple rain, as another uncompromised voice is lost, cadences of difference will keep on singing, eliminate gender, point another way, doves will cry for all, eyes will close, as third eyes open. Meteors will blaze a fiery trial. Indelible footprints will continue to reveal.

Prince Roger Nelson, 
Rest in Power.

Dearly beloved,
we are gathered,
here today,
to get through,
this thing called life.

Electric word life,
It means forever, 
and that's a mighty long time,
But I'm here to tell you,
There's something else,
The afterworld.

A world of  never ending happiness,
You can always see the sun , day or night,
Let's go crazy, Let's go nuts,
Look for the Purple banana,
Til they put us in the trunk,
Let's go!

We're all excited,
But we don't know why,
Maybe it's because,
We're all gonna die.

Let's go crazy, Let's go nuts. "

from; Prince - Let's go crazy ; 1984.
