So Charlton Heston has died
And gone on last chariot ride
Gadzooks and forsooth!
He didst speak the truth
His guns from his dead hands were pried
Chuck Heston, big star, epic flicks
Has died, fallen like ton of bricks
In deep baritone
Words chiseled in stone
He bellowed ten bible rubrics
He's El Cid, Ben-Hur and Will Penny
From Dark City, Big Country, so many
Touch of Evil, Khartoum
Made Apes' Planet go "Boom!
"Who fills Heston's shoes: None, not any.
