The poem was one of Angelou's worst ones. She occasionally writes like a third-grader. This one of of those.

That's repetitive; cruel and heartless are the same thing. Think of something more original, like, say, cruel and....purple. Yeah. Lots of people are cruel and heartless. How many people you know are cruel and purple? Think about it.

Just because he was different doesn't mean he was capable of all the things he was accused of. Stop taking your frustrations out on someone you didn't even know. He's dead. And people STILL won't leave him alone.

Michael Jackson was acquitted four years ago.

What part of "Acquitted" = "Innocent" in America do people not understand?

The shameful thing for Americans is that he went through our entire "justice" process. We praise it to the rafters when it is locking someone up or indicting someone for something. But when it works to prove innocence instead of guilt??

What a pack of hypocrites the media is. THE MAN WAS INNOCENT OF EVERY ACCUSATION brought against him. Found innocent by a jury of his peers, through the due process of an investigation and prosecution which made every possible attempt to prove him guilty.

News flash: He has NO criminal record. He was not a criminal. He was, by every legal and moral standard in our society, an innocent man.

This was a good guy, people. Not a perfect human, but which of us is? Cast the first stone, then.

He was kind, giving, by all accounts a loving person, a good son, brother, father, a good friend, and a basically helpful, harmless man spent his entire life from age 5 on just doing what he could to use his truly amazing God-given talents to help his fellow man.

RIP, Michael.
