What if Bob Marley Were Alive Today?

He would have lyrically shot the sheriff of poverty and strife and encouraged one love and unity because we have only one life.

Would our legend be proud of the current state of affairs, Would he have penned lyrics that would have prophesied world events that peeked the listening ear? I think ‘The Honourable Bob’ would have lashed out at the violence rife in society today, And encouraged the youths and perpretrators of crime that violence nuh pay.

He would have continued to fill stadia, And sell digital downloads and discs. The illegal piracy of which, He would beat with his lyrical fists. I think he would have been proud of his children, and the paths they have chosen, Fully supporting them to continue the path they are trodding.

He would have lyrically shot the sheriff of poverty and strife and encouraged one love and unity because we have only one life. It is therefore fitting that we honour this man, truly a prophet. One love to The Honourable Robert Nesta Marley, Jamaica’s eigth National hero, even if they do not admit it.
