Norma Jean

I saw Moby Dick riding the Star-Spangled Banner One full moon before the freezing September Jamaica made first the say Towards breaking the bonds of foray While Warren was saying goodbye Einstein blew the first cry Towards breaking the bonds of foray About six steps away While Norma Jean was groaning in pain The shadow of Columbus set sail for Spain Poor Nelson made the creed That broke the chains of apartheid While the world was shedding tears for a fallen angel Two teardrops fell that broke all hell While Jamaica was waving the flags of liberty Fleming unfolded an ancient mystery Poor lovely Norma Jean Fell early like James Dean But the memory of her prime Was revered through time In memory of Norma Jean Baker
