“Marilyn”

Another day
Another rich
Celebrity joking
that they
Have a
Split personality
Because they
Like to
Smoke weed
and read
I wonder
If they
Would glamorize
A split
Personality if
They met
Someone who
Actually is
Diagnosed but
Isn’t rich
And instead
Is shunned
By society
Like me
They probably
Would still
Joke anyway
I mean
Look at
Marilyn Monroe
Rumor has
It she
Had a
Split personality
But nobody
Talks about
Her suicide
Without glamour
And sex
And I
Wonder how
She would
Feel hearing
Famous people
Exploit the
Mentally ill
Just to
Appear more
Mysteriously sexy
But what’s
The use
Wondering that
She’s dead
And there’s
A chance
One day
I’ll die
The same
Way and
The famous
Will still
Joke about
Split personalities
To draw
Attention long
After I’m
Cold in
The ground.
