GUEST,Black Belt Caterpillar Wrestler Obit: RIP Sir Jimmy Savile of BBC [2011] (533* d) RE: Jimmy Savile :-( UK disc jockey 24 Oct 12


HERO TO ZERO.
İR.S.Madge 2012

Hero to zero in twenty-four hours,
As the news blogs and tweets round the world.
Hero to zero and once he was ours,
As the tissue of lies is unfurled.
For once he was noble, once he was kind,
The ears they were deaf and the eyes they were blind.
Now they're digging for dirt and it's easy to find,
And it too late for justice to serve.

His headstone is shattered, his grave has no mark
And his family disown him for good.
The newspapers sink him downwards into the dark
Fool's gold vanished now as it should.
How often in history has this tale been told,
Of a hero debase when the real truth is told?
With the victims left sobbing outside in the cold.
And there's no way for justice to serve.
