R.I.P., Bo Diddley


Rest in peace, Bo Diddley.
O rocker,
O singer,
O guitar slinger, your
driving one-chord rhythms
inspired a generation.
Then they ripped you off
& made millions.
Bastards!
“Hey Bo Diddley.”
That was your first big hit.
And your second & third & fourth, too.
Jon Ive says you had one good idea
& just milked it for an entire career.
A bit unkind of him, I think.
I mean, Look who’s talking, right?
