Who'd Want to be Famous

Who’d want to be famous? 

     I don’t – do you?

I’d feel like a monkey

     That’s caged in a zoo.

I don’t like folk staring -

     Especially at me.

Oh!  It’s SO embarrassing! 

     Don’t you agree?


Who’d want to be famous? 

     Well I don’t like fame,

For there I would be

     With my face all aflame.


You’d ask me a question,

     My mind would go blank

And I'd feel very foolish,

     I have to be frank!


The phone would be ringing

     From morning till night,

And my life, it would seem,

     Would be in a plight - - -

For I’d want to escape

     To my own private place

Where for certain I’d vanish

     Without any trace.


Who’d want to be famous? 

      I don’t – do you?

So I’ll wish all that fame

     And that fortune adieu.

Be famous?  Not likely! 

    Now, I hope you’ll excuse,

For I'm off to a meeting

     With my poetic muse.
