The agony of a princess Led to her despair. She couldn't see the point. Pain left her threadbare. The slump that never ended Pushed her in the ditch. From doldrums in stagnation Crawled an irritating itch. She habitually scratched For pleasure and relief, Delighted and empowered Birthing blesséd grief. The joy of daily drinking Pleased her in her stupors. Content with happy sadness, Storms of laughing troopers. A golden gem of crisis: Wretched woe on every day. Each nightmare living daily Haunting her dismay. In sadness never seen Was born our joyful Queen.
Carrie Fisher, American actress and author, died today in 2016.
