Listen to poem:
She is one of many, dear Eleanor secluded 
in her secular sepulcher,
One of the lonely plenty, a regular within the 
   anonymous atoms nebular…

Dreamed of rice, at her wedding 
with her sorrows spreading,
She paid the price, with tears shedding
   and one pillow bedding…

Of her loneliness, the nights in waiting 
never participating,
Perhaps erroneous, her heart pulsating 
   and will abating…

All her lonely people, avoiding the sun 
hurting no one,
Brings them to the steeple, with prayers none
   trying to outrun...

Father McKenzie, could not help Eleanor 
a social predator,
In his frenzy, using sermons as to metaphor 
   a false presenter.

Rest in peace Eleanor Rigby...
