Allurement of tragedies go like fevers
warm the blood, even poke the cold heart
there you stand, glowing with excitement
staring at the spot of death
this is where she blead to death
oh, how dramatic, how utterly curious
a gory entertainment for your benefit
almost a live movie in itself
we should applaud, give statues

However, it wasn't make-belief
she really died and never rose again
made her richest corpse of them all
not much use for those riches though
they too work for the tourist industries
jumping hoops with her reputation
