I’d love to try fame on for size,
check it’s not something I’d end up wanting to despise.
Happy to start on the bottom rung,
so, I get to see first-hand, how fame gets done.
I’ve been close, I’ve been almost famous,
I once shared a New York cab with Billy Ray Cyrus.*
I know vaguely the muse for Adele,
you know the one she obsessed over that didn’t go so well.
I shook the hand of Dylan Carson,
he who handed Kurt Cobain his suicidal weapon.
And I spent hours with Woody Harrelson,
drinking in the coffee and the plays of Henrik Ibsen.
So, I’ve been almost a celebrity,
I did after all win a water fight, with Davy of The Monkees.
I need a chance, I need a break,
if the fame ladder calls, I’m sure I’ve got what it takes.
*Maybe it was Richard Dreyfus or possibly Bette Davis.

Thanks for the comments, and if I ever do get famous, I'll sure let everyone know how 😁

Fame is fleeting, John. I once spoke to Lord Longford in the street outside the Houses of Parliament, but where did it get me, or him?

From what I've seen of "fame" these days John, I'd be very wary of it!

If and when you've got there John and finished with the guidebook of how you did so, could I have it please?
I mean just the thought of mixing with Ant and Dec, Graham Norton, Alan Titchmarsh, Claudia Winkleman, Ozzy Osbourne oh and Prince???? Harry would really make me....no.
...better not 😂
cool composition squire!
