Remembering the mosaic-like life of Charton Heston
The one who brought Ben Hur to life
the Moses of the NRA
has reached his Mount Nebo
Convincingly this actor dashed
God’s chiseled ten commands.
We watched as tablets made of stone
fell from his “cold dead hands.”
He had one wife for six decades.
His life was quite a tale.
He marched with Martin, brunched with Bush,
then watched his memory fail.
Like Ronald Reagan, Heston was
A complex life with warts and quirks
whose talents will be missed.
Peace to his memory!
