“8 for the 6th” haiku

January 6th
A birthday constellation
Heavenly to chart

Wilbert Harrison
“Kansas City” fame, and sang
“Let’s Stick Together”

Doris Troy, co-wrote,
Sang “Just One Look,” soul classic.
Backed up Stones, others

Van McCoy, hustled
Through disco, helped Aretha,
Gladys Knight, the Pips

Sandy Denny, sang
Folk with Fairport Convention,
Led Zep’s “Evermore”

Troubled Syd Barrett
Pink Floyd leader till life got
Too psychedelic

Kim Wilson, singer
For Fabulous Thunderbirds
Plays a mean harp, too

Need some hard-rock chords?
AC/DC’s Malcolm Young
Says, “Turn it up, man”

Kathy Sledge, sisters
Reminded each one of us
We are fam-uh-lee
