Hollywood called her Marilyn Monroe
Though her name was Norma Jeane

But that would never befit a star
This siren, of the silver screen

Sensuality made her famous
They would melt, with just a wink

Abused by those around her
Found her on the edge, the brink

Pills would ease the torture
That went on inside her head

Until the day they found her
A body, lifeless, across the bed

Her light had now been dimmed
After years of sheer neglect

But Marilyn would, forever, remain
A shining star, with a touch of perfect
