Hello Bill,  Welcome to PMO.  You handled this story in verse quite well.  I remember this time, it was scary. 

For a younger reader, I don't know if the names other than "Manson" have much meaning.  I am wondering if the image of a beautiful young starlet wouldn't be more powerful than using her name "Sharon Tate". But that is just where my mind went after coming back from spending time with my teenage granddaughters.  If it didn't happen in the 21st century it didn't happen.  

 Helter Skelter was the name of a best selling book which I among millions of others read at the time and the phrase grew to represent terrifying chaos.  I'll have ask to ask the kids if they ever heard these names and phrases.

This was a piece that obviously took time and care to write.  Nice,    ~~Tink
