|Well, now you know about death. The church
is a marvelous thing
at a time like this. It’s at its best.
the rest of the time it’s often rather silly—
little men running around
in little black suits.
Catholics understand death
better than anyone.
And because none could be found,
Andy Williams gave Bobby Kennedy
his tie to be buried in.
Jackie Kennedy only boarded Air Force One
when assured it was not the same Dallas plane
she had flown in once before.
What a burden of tragedy
this plane carries—
Rafer Johnson and Charles Evers
cried like little babies.
(**a found poem from the mixed words of Ethyl Kennedy,
Roger Mudd, Linda Deutsch & George Herman)
