In Life For Some - Poem by Francis Duggan

The hero of last year is not a hero today
In life for some it can be this way
Those who build you up can also drag you down
There can be a price to pay for wealth and renown
The people who create heroes and heroines of them quickly can tire
And they never fail for to find others to admire
Today's hero or heroine may not be so this time next year
Of stories of fallen idols we so often read of and hear
Celebrity do not count on your fans for their unreserved loyalty
With most of them their their admiration is conditional this is how it seems to be
Fallen idols are to be found in towns and cities everywhere
There are many of them in the big World out there
And the heroes of last year may not be so today
In life for some it can be this way.
