27 Club

The 27 Club is a term used to refer to popular musicians who have died at the age of 27, often as a result of drug and alcohol abuse. The number of musicians who have died at this age and the circumstances of many of those deaths has given rise to the idea that premature deaths at this age are unusually common. (Wikipedia)

you impatiently waited
for the invitation to this club
and overused all the benefits of your fame…
do you remember the nights full of smoke,
when Jack and Cola could run free
and crack was burning your nostrils?
in the end you lucked out
and did not outlive any of the successors…
during the last hour you told me proudly
that this death is for all the idols,
we knew and loved together…
you whispered that this for Cobain
and Jimi Hendrix!
thus, be blessed my departed friend,
you died as you wished –
as a bright star
being proud of all the sins
