    Curtain Call

    A man that was never a child
    A child that was never a man
    A legend that was still alive
    A height that only he had reached
    A fall that went so low
    A love and hate that only he could know
    A desire to be the best again
    A rocket sitting on its new launching pad
    A voice came from above
    "Rest you have done enough"
    "Let your past continue to glow"
    "It is now time for you to go"
    Michael Jackson went home
