WHO'D WANT

TO BE FAMOUS? 

Who’d want to be famous?  I don’t – do you?

I’d feel like a monkey that’s caged in a zoo.

    I don’t like folk staring - especially at me.

    Oh!  SO embarrassing!  Don’t you agree?

 

Who’d want to be famous? Well I don’t like fame -

For there I would be with my face all aflame.    

    You’d ask me some questions. My mind would go blank.

     And - -  Oh I'd feel foolish, I have to be frank!

 

The phone would be ringing from morning till night

And my life, it would seem, would be in a plight,

     For I’d want to escape to my own private place

     Where for certain I’d vanish without any trace.

 

So, who’d want to be famous?  I don’t – do you?

So I’ll wish all that fame and that fortune adieu.

      Be famous?  Not likely!  Now, I hope you’ll excuse -

      For I'm meeting for coffee - - -  my poetic muse. shhh!
