You started out on Ork
A cosmic jet fueled dork
And I would love it when you
Visited us on happy days
Only you could know
The witness of your show
A brain made up of sadness
And electric rays
Good morning Vietnam
Must’ve been your truest song
For in you was a war you’d always wage
The hunting of good will
The laughs would never fill
Your hunger for the dream
To turn the page

Oh Robin you flew
And now robin you fly
To places we can’t see or yet conceive
The joy that you gave
We know now was brave
To be free and yet
remain still a slave

The fisher king was you
Those of us never knew
That your demons hadn’t yet been tamed
You hid in the storm
Of laughter so warm
Hard to see that the source
Was still maimed
Awakenings will come
But the sadness goes on
And age will come down on us all
The dead poets you loved
Wrote of it as they shoved
Light into the darkness of the fall

Oh Robin you flew
And now robin you fly
To places we can’t see or yet conceive
The joy that you gave
We know now was brave
To be free and yet remain
still a slave

Joseph Arthur
