Fame
Will this poem make me Famous?
Iíll have to wait and see;
Like cookies did for Uncle Amos,
Or Uncle Miltie for TV.

Will It bring me Riches?
All my wishes will be fulfilled;
I could scratch whatever itches,
Thereís money in the till.

Will it make me Happy?
Iíve forgotten what thatís like;
Iím so tired of feeling crappy,
Like a third wheel on a bike.

Will I get Respect at Last?
Like that famous Aretha?
Will people clamor Ďround me,
Asking all about my past,
Wanting to know who found me?

Will Fame affect me, change my Style?
Well, perhaps just a bit,
I'll sign an autograph once in awhile,
After all, I am a Hit !

Will it get me a Weekly Series?
Will Neilson rate me Number One?
The whole Countryís writing queries,
What do I DO to have some fun?

Yes, Fame is what I strive for,
Why Iím writing every day;
Yet, Thereís one thing I know for sure
Iíd gladly chuck it all away!

Although Fame is what Iím after,
What I really want is you;
I live to hear your laughter
And see you all day through.

Fame is for the Lonely -
Thatís a fact I never knew;
I want not Fame, but only
To Live inside of You.

But I invent Romances,
Where None are to be found,
I create those lonely Dances,
To eerie, haunting sounds.

So what is left for me, but Fame?
Itís in the Master Plan;
You Love Me not, Iím not to blame,
At Least youíll be a Fan.

All will read this silly Rhyme,
Itís all part of the Game,
But itís you I write for all the Time,
Yes itís you that brings me Fame.
