Hollywood Babylon by James Allen


Jane Mansfield in her day
only one word to describe,
Unbelievably attractive, men and women
almost gave themselves whiplash when she
walked by like a goddess from another planet.
She was among us but not from us.
But she held a deadly secret,
one shared by every 7th man.
The power of the bottle proved
too strong for her magic powers.
When she died in an automobile
accident the bottles came streaming out
onto the pavement like little war stories
which no one won.
Nobody escapes, even the dog was killed.
