A Beauty in Distress (poem)

Dear friends,

A tribute to the once irresistible beauty of Hollywood, Marilyn Monroe.
After viewing her slides, I was inspired to give her an
eulogy of remembrance.

A BEAUTY WITHOUT MUCH SUBSTANCE
A LIFE FULL OF MATERIALISM
A BEAUTY OF IMPERMANENCE
A LIFE OF UNTOLD INVOLVEMENT
WITH THE RICH AND FAMOUS
A DECADENT OF MORALITY.

A LIFE LIVED SO WILD AND FREE
A BEAUTY FULL OF MISERY
BEYOND A WHOLESOME DIGNITY
A PRE-MATURED DEATH IN INFAMY
A SAD LIFE OF MARILYN MONROE
IT IS HER DESTINY.
