They send a limousine from heaven – Gil Scott – Heron († 27. Mai 2011)

rest in peace, Gil.

*****

“What the winds and the clouds say,
A sensual soul
And self that african sense

And she raised me like she raised 4 of her own
And I was hurt and scared and shocked when lily Scott left suddenly one night

And they send a limousine from heaven
To take her to God
If there is one
So I knew she had gone

And I came from a broken home”

(Gil Scott – Heron, On coming from a broken home, I´m new here, XL 2009)
