One Might Say Of Them - Poem by Francis Duggan

So many so called role models the masses did celebrate
have become a huge disappointment of late
Exposed as criminals and hypocrites of them one can say
But what goes around comes around life works in this way
Some of the people we choose to look up to and admire
Are now not the sort that others does inspire
One might say of them they flattered to deceive
The fruits of the Karma we sow we receive
They have left their fans and their admirers down
From fame and admiration they have slipped to ill renown
Behind prison bars they are serving their time
The criminals eventually do pay for their crime
One can say of them they flattered to deceive
In life the fruits of the Karma we sow we receive.
