Rasta man haiku

Nesta Robert Marley, Feb. 6, 1945 — May 11, 1981

I say “Bob Marley”
Play word association
Bet you say “reggae”

Or maybe “Legend”
His “best of” album became
Reggae’s best seller

The people’s heartbeat
The downbeat of oppression
Upbeat of freedom

Reggae superstar
But he told his son Ziggy
“Money can’t buy life”

Oppression goes on
Freedom cries out so long as
Marley’s music wails
