David Bowie is here

When I was in grade one,
My sister Sue helped me,
Win a jack-o-lantern contest at school,
Well, the work was all she.

I won a gift prize for a record store,
My very first album!
Sister two said, "buy Rush, Exit Stage Left!".
I tended to value her opinion.

Then Susy went to the store with my prize,
Bought Bowie's Changes One!
I was angry, then I listened to it,
And all anger was gone.

Now it is thirty years,
I've got thirty Bowies,
His words will live forever in my mind,
All from a pumpkin with ears made from leaves.
