Fame & Twitter

 

What happens to

all those calendar girls

the Hollywood celebs

the "influencers"

once they pass 30

and see their fortunes sag

like skin on a bull dog

their popularity goes

their 15 minutes of fame

over and done

will they have to get

a real job with no skills

go to work at Starbucks?

how sad they did not prepare

they thought a tattoo was all they needed

that Celebrity was a profession

with popularity gone

and names forgotten

now only a used commodity on Craigslist

like an old couch no one wants

how fleeting

fame & twitter.

It often makes me wonder if in twenty years time all those with tattoos may reconsider their move into skin art. Particularly those who bear the names of those who are no longer loved ones

Good poem D.K.

Great subject - excellent treatment. Age 30 is a bit harsh - sheesh! But maybe not in your specified target arena.

Holly celebs must wail and weep
To see their fortunes sag
They used to bounce in front so proud
But now sag like a bag

Yes indeed, they wail and weep
"I spent a fortune on them"
Now look what they've gone done to me
No longer shining gems......

d.k.,

The inadequate chase after fame, glitter and twitter. It is all transitory and ends in tears. Good poem.

Thanks
Keith
