It's a tough time for children of the '80s. First Michael Jackson, then John Hughes and now we've lost Patrick Swayze. Swayze always stood out as manly yet sensitive, rugged yet a little refined. He could beat people up in Road House and then spin pottery in Ghost.


What better way to remember such a man than with a poem? Aaron Belz, a bard with a deep attachment to the 1980s gave us this tribute.
