World Famous & Legendary

World Famous & Legendary

 

Seen through

The eyes

Of 80 years

That do not recognize

One name.

The claim: ‘World famous ‘, ‘Legendary”;

Words that play around with fame.

 

I read today, “He played with Zappa.”

Should I clap? Where on the map

Is Zappa? Pap,

It’s pap to me,

This ‘famous/legendary’ crap

I’m reading daily.

 

How long is a piece of string?

How long is eternal fame?

Both abstractions; guess, dream, trap.

A Zappa of whom

Our descendant’s offspring

Will not have a clue,

Fame and legend being

The illusion.
