THE DEAD J’S ROCK BAND (A Stacked Haiku)

A hidden gateway

Overabundance of green

Live Oaks, Lantana…

String Man stumbles through

Guitar slung over his back

Fiddle held in hand.


Moment gazing at the dream

She smiles and says,

Tell me who you are

Have we met somewhere before?

He smiles and says,

Went to hell one day

Much worse than a summer drought

A Haiku-ish thought

I met the Dead J’s

Got out our guitars and played

Whoosh, we’re in Heaven.

Who are the Dead J’s?

Jimi Hendrix, lead guitar

Janis Joplin sings.

John Denver from high

John Lennon Imagines songs

Jim Croce had dreams

Jim — Doors — Lizard King

Jerry Garcia, Grateful

John Bonham, drummer

A preponderance

Of J’s that died much too soon

Still rocking away!

I am the front man

Looking to start a new band

Got any ideas?

Well, pick a letter!

Grim Reaper is the String Man?

Smiling, I say, “X”
