Michael Jackson
Billie Jean begins
Lights die down while glove shines bright
Mike moonwalks all night
The Moonwalker

The author's comments:
Michael Jackson is my all time favorite musician. I listen to his well-known Thriller album quite often. I thought I'd write about my favorite song of his, Billie Jean and when it first aired on March 25, 1983, during Motown 25. I guess it's coincidence that just about a year ago, was the album Thriller's 25 anniversary. The point is, I find Michael Jackson to be the best dancer and singer in the world. His moves unique and they look SOOOO good on stage. This poem is dedicated to him.......The True King of Pop, Rock and Soul. Elvis ain't got nothing on Mike!!! :)

Good try, but I would have liked it more if it rhymed a little more. You should try again. With your subject, you have got TONS of material, (with HIS career you've got at least 40 years).

P.S I agree, amazing talent and great dancing!
