The Newspapers - Poem by Kevin Campbell

Is it best to kiss and tell
The fun of loving
Then reliving it as well

Shared secrets
Of seedy nights
Told in bars, by movie stars
Watch the reporters write

Hold the page
new headline today
Bondage Queen and Porno Star
Now Vicars wife! shes gone too far

Is it worth it
Would you do it again
For fifteen minuets fame
And a ruined name

In a sleazy London club
All the men wear leather
All the women talk rough

So beware the ones who kiss and tell
Ruined reputations
Reporters making life hell

So ask, is it worth it
Would you do it all again
For fifteen minuets fame
And a ruined name
