Fallen Idols

I know them
I knew them
I think I can remember their names ,
didn’t they drive past me
in that motorcade that came
through my town one day ?

I can still remember standing there
with those crowds cheering ,
waving as they passed us by ,
I knew them
I saw them ,
their faces unchanged
smiling at me from old newspaper headlines.

I think I can remember
applauding all their anniversaries ,
I’m sure the crowds do too ,
even now as their TV image falters ,
I read in Deutoronomy ,
cut down their groves..destroy their altars.

    You “end” on such a memorable note
    I might have forgotten this well-written
    memorial to fame
    those last lines won’t let me now
