When You Are Famous - Poem by Hebert Logerie

When you are famous
When you are a glamorous
You’re not seen as a sinner
Even when the bell rings
When you do or say bad things
You are instantly forgiven
You’re living in a man-made heaven
Not dying in a special Auspice oven
You basically free to roam and to rant
When you are famous
Even at Lent
You’re not taken too seriously
And not criticized too severely
Michael Jackson is posthumously more famous
So is Maya Angelou, our courageous
Star and multi-talented sister
A scribble on a piece of paper
Of anything by those siblings is a big deal
Oprah is famous
Obama is famous
Hilton is famous
Trumpy is famous
Everything that they do is a steal
A big deal; this is amazing
They are rarely marginalized
Very often celebrated for nothing
And appreciated for everything
Under the moon
Even when they get the tune
The song wrong
They are applauded like the king
Or queen of Hong Kong
This is incredibly amazing
When you’re famous
You can do nothing wrong
People are always generous
Toward you. Like an old song
The beat is unforgettable
The emotions are alive at the table
When you are famous
You live a different and interesting life
You can call your children: North, South
West, East, Brown, Ivory, J lo, and Blue
Just to name a few
And people won’t laugh at you.

    Its a nice poem talking about a famous person.
    Even when they get the tune
    The song wrong
    They are applauded like the king.... very true
