Rhymes & Reasons
Remembering the Queen of Soul
by Greg Asimakoupoulos
Posted: August 18, 2018
A tribute to Aretha Franklin…
The Queen of Soul (her Majesty)
ruled well. Her reign was long.
In Motown (at her daddy's church)
her scepter was her song.
RESPECT we gave her as she sang.
Both white and black concurred.
She voiced emotions from the heart
as those who listened heard.
This much-loved voice is silent now.
The Queen has left her throne.
And on this day while millions grieve
we trust in Christ alone.
