An Ode to The Poet Laureate of Television
Nipsey Russell, actor
comedian and poet
passed away just yesterday
he was 80 but didn't show it
he made some movies like Wildcats
and he played Tinman in The Wiz
But he was the BEST on Match Game
he could rhyme like nobody's biz
Here's to you Mr.Russell
from a saddened fan
even though The Wiz really sucked
you were always the man
If you are going to say anything about Nipsey in the comments, you have to do it in rhyme.
Also, let's not forget that the B-52s immortalized Nipsey in song: Roam, Nipsey Russell, roam around the world....
