Michael Jackson: Imitation Of Life

Ian Penman, Modern Review, The, Summer 1993

Michael the archangel listen/Michael don't you see?/If you are on the side of good/Now where does that leave me?
Paddy McAloon, 'Michael'
When I was 17 I did what people told me/Did what my father said and let my mother mould me/But that was long ago...
Janet Jackson, 'Control'
