Getting Paid Under The Table - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Getting praise does not make one pretty.
No matter how great one's talents.
Or longevity in the spotlight.
One with money and looks like a moose,
Could convince anyone getting paid under the table...
That they are an Easter Bunny masquerading as Halle Berry.
And deserving to be featured on the cover of Playboy Magazine.
With the exposure of their 'gifts'.
Someone with money or the capability to make it,
And narcissistic too?
Can not be told they do not possess natural beauty.
