Fame Is A Blink


How ironic you say, living you made
no impact on anything but dead its
a whole new game. Explain that in a
way which placates a cringing ego.
It’s corporeality’s last relic you think –
having an ego as a hangover deemed
meaningful; be advised, no dead man
plays the game nor has a self or cares
what you think. Fame is a blink with 10
cent notoriety run to the head. Yep,
given my druthers, I’d rather be dead.
