Few Celebrities Who Know Of Success And Fame - Poem by Francis Duggan

Few celebrities who know of success and fame
As they once were are known to remain the same
An old saying perhaps you would have heard said
That success has gone to her or his head
A successful person without any conceit
Is one in a lifetime you may only meet
For the down to earth famous people are quite rare indeed
And of more of their sort the Human World is in need
It is hard to stay humble if you are one that many admire
And of singing your praises they never do tire
It is hard to stay humble if yours is a great name
As humility often becomes the victim of money and fame
The humble wealthy and famous to say the least few
And this is not saying anything that is new.
