You can learn a lot about a person when auctioning off all their possessions. Sure, Michael Jackson has BeDazzled everything one could BeDazzle (which is everything!) and loves superhero costumes, but there’s a lot more to his estate than evidence of a vicious shopping addiction and a keen eye for sparkly whatnots. On what looks like either a gravestone or one of the Stations of the Cross, Jackson engraved his own poem likely titled “Children of the World,” which is being put up for auction amidst his financial woes.
“Children of the world, we’ll do it,” Jackson wrote. “With song and dance and innocent bliss / The soft caress of a loving kiss / We’ll do it.” And then: “While boardroom squabbles generate heat / And in secret places dealers meet / We’ll sing and dance in innocent bliss / With the soft caress of a loving kiss.”
