Material world haiku

George Harrison, Jan. 25, 1943 – Nov. 29, 2001

Something in the way
He moved up was so human
So much of the flesh

Hare Krishna George,
Vegetarian, gardener
Loved cigs, women too

He was a real guy
However much he thought life
A mystic movie

He loved the music,
All-night ukulele jams
And No. 1 hits

From his Fab Four fame
To Bangladesh, Wilburys
He made such sweet sounds

Let’s toast all of him —
A good and talented soul
And flawed flesh and blood
