Their Fans - Poem by Francis Duggan

The wealthy celebrities their many fans celebrate
And look up to them as special and great
But they are not all they are made out to be
Many of them in their ways quite ordinary

The wealthy and famous multi millionaire
With a normal sized ego to say the least rare
Among their sort the look at me syndrome is rife
They believe they are a great gift to life

And for this their fans must be partly to blame
Since without them they would not know of fame
That too much praise can go to one's head
No truer words have ever been said

In a Human World where self promotion does seem the in thing
Their own praises many love to sing
The humble, kind and compassionate to say the least few
On this i am not saying anything that is new.

In an age when humility seems out of date
The egotistical wealthy and famous the impressionable masses celebrate
And swollen egos they help to create
By their making of the ordinary out to be great.
