Who Would Want To Be World Famous?


Who would want to be world famous?

This, the planet so humongous,

Virtuous and villainous,

Full of goodness, full of badness.

Who wants to expose himself’

To the injustices of pelf

That lay in wait upon the shelf of fates unknown?

I’ve come to think: Remain un-shown,

Roof up above, food for the day,

A bed on which to lay your head,

Doing what you’re born to do,

Meant to fulfill you

Without pushing for reward.

Those who aim for fame today

Go absolutely the wrong way.

That’s it – and all I have to say.
