A Broke Nut Who Managed To Make A Name - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Notoriety and wealth,
Are heavyweights to bear.
For one who can not appear anywhere,
To publicly go unnoticed.
Yet desires to have privacy.

However...
Those with fame and bone broke,
Can run the streets naked...
Only to be described when this is revealed,
As 'A Broke Nut Who Managed To Make A Name.'
