Famous In My Own Mind - Poem by David Whalen

In my poetic life
I’ve gained a measure
of celebrity

People who read me
Know me instantly…
As “that eccentric ol’ S.O.B.”

But that’s o.k., I’ve got no pride
It’s actually been a rather
pleasant ride

And at this point, you see
It’s just fine with me
To be

In self ordained celebrity…
“That grizzled, grumpy, (and crochety)
Eccentric ol’ S.O.B.”
