Edie S. (Sedgwick) - Poem by Yoni Assis

Poor little rich girl
Life was a whirl
One giant swirl
Continuous twirl

Edie was needy
Not really seedy
Down on the weedy
Up on the speedy

Greedy for fame
Sometimes no shame
Who can we blame
Her friends were the same

Edie met Andy
How very dandy
Wooed her with candy
Kept the girl randy

Money from daddy
Always came handy
Plenty of brandy
Plenty of smacky

Clothes galore
Hit every store
Her word was “more”
Like Eva Gabor

True ingénue
Was so brand new
Wanted by many
Had by just few

Sex and not love
Fit like a glove
Flew like a dove
Nothing to solve

Crash and burn
It was her turn
So much to learn
Had she just spurned

Edie the Star
Set a high bar
Beloved today
Will always stay

    I'm a big Edie fan. Read the American Girl biography, saw the amazing Factory Girl with Sienna Miller, and her movie Ciao Manahattan! Such a beautiful and vibrant girl, who went before her time. Lindsay Lohan wishes she were here. (Report) Reply

    I have to say, that I really enjoyed reading this. It makes me think that in some ways, we are all like that when we are young and brilliant.... then, we grow older and we start to understand that we know nothing we sometimes fall hard.
    Great poem.
