Anthony Bourdain – His Next Adventure (Poem)

Anthony Bourdain – His Next Adventure

Anthony Bourdain was found dead?
What?! Is that what the news just said?
That he hung himself in his French hotel room?
Likely due to depression, a seemingly inescapable gloom,
I’m just in shock to hear the bad news,
I knew he had a thing for smoking and booze,
But I wasn’t aware of his mental health,
It goes to show depression cares not about status or wealth,
That man was a piece of work but genuine and funny,
Filled with attitude and opinions but a heart of honey,
He was a talented chef and storyteller,
His shows were award-winning and books bestseller,
It’s a shame his light has been snuffed from existence,
If only he could have reached out for assistance,
May he find the peace he never found in life,
But knowing him, it’ll start with bourbon and a chef knife,
