Lana Turner has collapsed! (1)
Okay, so it's clear that Lana Turner is important to our speaker – the
poem begins with a reference to her. We find out about her collapse even
before we know who the speaker is, where he is, who he's with, and so
on. And the speaker expects us to know who she is; Lana Turner's a movie star, after all. He assumes that his readers love celebrity culture as much as he does.
LANA TURNER HAS COLLPSED! (11)
Thanks, Frank, for reminding us. The speaker hasn't mentioned Lana since
the first line of the poem, but here she comes roaring back into it.
The headline almost screams at us to pay attention: a terrible thing has
happened to a beautiful woman!
oh Lana Turner we love you get up (17)
In these lines, the speaker, perhaps with a knowing little smile, boldly
states his love for a celebrity who he's never met. He addresses her
directly, as if she could actually hear him. Maybe he's a little nuts,
or maybe he just wants to send some good vibes to Lana. Either way, he
speaks as if he actually knows Lana – the object of his admiration – personally.
