Everyone is Mortal RIP Etta James

Etta James was an American blues singer who sang at the Montreux Jazz Festival many times during her career. She was Blues Artist of the Year on no less than fourteen occasions. She died after a long battle with leukemia on 20 January 2012, age 73

Everyone is mortal
Everyone will die
Etta James has passed away
Many said goodbye

Reader you are mortal
Reader you will die
Even I as poet
Some day I will die
