For Prince (1958-2016)

Prince guitar

You were purple; raspberry, silver and gold, a little red, peach and black and… (ahem) cream

All the colours of the musical rainbow

Pan-sexual Peter Pan

The Little Richard for our generation

A sexy motherfucker

Breaker of taboos

That ferocious falsetto, and scream of lust

A little revolutionary

Ace musician and bender of genre

Stroker of religious iconography

A variation on an enigma

A grinning Ninja

RIP Prince Rogers Nelson
