Is it just death from here on in?

A poem for dead pop stars;-

IS IT JUST DEATH FROM HERE ON IN?

THERE I WAS TRYING REALLY HARD
TO BELIEVE IN MONKEE DAYDREAMS
I HEARD THE NEWS THAT DAVY JONES
HAD DIED FROM A HEART ATTACK
I COULD HAVE SWORN I HEARD THE WHISTLE
OF CLARKSVILLE’S LAST TRAIN CALLING
PICKING UP ALL THOSE DEAD POP-STARS
ON THE NEVER ENDING JOURNEY BACK HOME
EVERY DAY THE LIST GETS LONGER
MORE STARS FALLING FROM THE SKY
THEY GET A LITTLE NOD ON FACEBOOK
LINKS TO FINE WRITTEN OBITUARIES
AND ANCIENT YOU-TUBE VIDEOS
REST IN PEACE AMY AND WHITNEY
AND DOBIE, JACKIE AND ETTA
LET MEMORIES JUST NOT FADE AWAY
WILL ALL OF US ALWAYS LOVE YOU?
IS IT JUST DEATH FROM HERE ON IN?
