Chuck Berry

I remember the day that Chuck Berry died.
It was a in March.
I was writing at the time
But was jolted back to reality

By the news that Chuck Berry had died.
I didn’t cry. I was too numb.
It didn’t seem real that he could be dead.
He was 90 years old and recording a new album.

Chuck bought rock & roll to the white man.

And with it he bought his cheeky showmanship.
He was one of the first musicians
To be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of fame

And rightly so.

His hits are too many to mention here
But we all know them.
It still hasnt registered that he’s gone
One day it will sink in

Chuck may be gone but his music will always be around.
