J.D. Salinger, R.I.P.

A recluse who wouldn't reply
has left without saying goodbye
His epitaph blurb
reads Do not disturb
discouraging those who would pry

His hero, young Holden, no phoney,
like J. D., could not stand baloney
His yearning for truth
struck chords with the youth,
each Johnny and Jimmy and Joanie

A hermit who lived all alone
he never would answer the phone
And queries by mail
were to no avail
returning 'addressee unknown'
